  last post for a potential fix.

That was my post. Yes, I've worked around this problem by using the kernel option "noapic".

The next problem is, it won't install in graphics mode, and once installed, it won't go into graphics mode. Apparently it is unhappy with the graphics processor on the DX4720-03.

The F10 Live CD hangs up on a blank screen, which I suspect is also related to not being able to deal with the graphics processor.

The DX4720-03 has an NVIDIA GeForce 7100 integrated graphics processor with shared memory.

Does anyone know how to get this to work? Or do you have hints on diagnosing the problem?
