Did you go through the genius bar, tutorial and faq sections yet? This is a very common problem and quite difficult to pinpoint if you don't know exactly how things are configured.

Some of the things you might try:

- Use IDE insted of SATA, if possible.

- Always pin your IDE HDD to master (no cable select)

- Remove any overclocking settings you may have in your BIOS

- Enable ACPI

- Do not combine PS2 with USB keyboards/mice


Also, the DVD you are using is quite dated. Try downloading tubgirls 10.4.8 DVD; it works better for AMD systems.


Good luck,
