I'm installing a new 16 from DVD to an ASUS P8 Z68 M-Pro motherboard with an i7 processor and 16 Gb Ram. I have tried using both the VGA and DVI video ports.
No matter what I do, the install get to the ISOLinux 4.02... prompt, the screen goes gray, there is a cursor flashing at the upper left hand corner, the Num Lock light flashes out and the machine hangs. I don't kow what to do to troubleshoot this.
I have done:
1 - made a CD from a boot.iso
2 - tried options: text, lowres, nofb, noprobe, nodma, noapic, allowcddma,
nopcmcia, nofirewire, expert, nousb, pci=noacpi, acpi=off, xdriver=vesa
I can check the DVD media booting on another PC, but I go through the same permutations above with linux mediacheck and I get the same results - without the gray screen though (black screen only).
I am able to test memory fine.
I have also removed all drives except the DVD to do the media check.
I have an identical hardware setup at work - same results.
Thanks in advance,

I found the solution to this one in a Ubuntu forum (sorry).
There is a bios setting to set the ASM1061 Storage Controller.
When this controller is set to disabled, the installation works without a problem.
I kept thinking that this was a video problem <groan>,
