I have seen a few mails saying AMD computers cannot boot interprid and hardy.
This problem is seen with AMD and Nvidia chipsets and 32 and 64 bit chipsets
You have to add a argument in the boot line and it should work.
There are several kernel posts about this problem.
When running boot cd, after choosing language, press F6 and add "pci=nomsi" to
boot line after "quiet splash". Then boot. ( press enter)
It worked on all 3 of my AMD systems and I could install hardy and interprid.
Hopes it helps a few people.
