AMD Sempron 3100+
« on: July 18, 2017, 03:03:36 pm »
I have an old AMD Sempron 3100+ with 2 Gb of RAM. I tried to install PM8 from USB but after boot the installation screen (splash screen) freezes. There is no way I get it installed.

With the TAB key I managed to open the options. With F6 removed the "quiet splash ---" and typed "nomodeset" but than it also doesn't boot.

It took me some time to try the 32 bit version, but that didn't change a thing.

Anybody any ideas?

With kind regards,

For some reason unknown to me it worked like a charm this morning. Guess it had a good night's sleep. Or i. :-\

Wow, I haven't seen one of those in ages.  Yeah, stick with 32-bit on that processor, it has no 64-bit support.
