None, don't pick anything in the video section.


Concentrate on getting a working, booting system. You can always install a video injector or device property string when the OS is up and running.

now i cant even boot from the dvd

i had some errors on my partitions because of the reset and force shut down

i fixed them with a partition manager by formating the one with errors

when i insert the dvd i press enter and it starts loading from dvd and after 1 minute it shut downs

i tried to boot in -v and i noticed some errors

and after a short time "system halted by root"

here is a picture

I'm curious about the "80-conductor cable" messages - those are the IDE cables connecting your P-ATA devices to your motherboard.


Check that these cables are firmly plugged in to the drives and the motherboard.


If the connections are fine and you are using antique DMA-33 style IDE cables, you should really get some 80-conductor cables instead.

80-conductor cables have better RF noise isolation and allow for faster data transfer speeds.


It's fine that you got your keyboard working but you will have problems when using PS2 keyboard and USB mouse at the same time.

You need to use either one or the other. I would buy a USB keyboard.
