I checked i386 iso again, with virtualbox on different laptops and virtual
machine on PVE (set to single core kvm32, that might be the closest
environment to real i386 machine).
Here are some results:
- The noisy screen problem only happened on the virtualbox on my laptop.
PVE, and virtualbox on other laptops wouldn't have this problem. However
even in my laptop only i386 iso has this problem. amd64 iso wouldn't.
- The OEM installation options in F4 menu is only unavailable the first
time I tried it (after reading Varolie's report). All the other time it is
- However OEM installation has never been successful. I saw Rik has
already had patches for that.
BTW, now the *real* i386 machine is very rare... even if there is real
i386 machine, the memory is usually not enough for running live. However
I've met a scenario which only i386 iso works: I had classes teaching FOSS
and would like to have students install ezgo on virtualbox, which runs on a
Windows 7 32-bit system... Orz
