Im trying to install 7.0 from boot only CD and having problems detecting

The NIS is a nforce integrated to the mother asus P5n-e sli
The card is working in DFBSD and windows, I think it worked in Linux
too, but need to try it out again to be sure about the last.
Dhclient fails, write the config by hand doesnt work neither.
Someone had installed 7.0 with this mother?
Thanks for any help.


Is your board based on the nForce 650i chipset? I have been struggling to get this chipset to work with SMP, have you been able to get more than 1 CPU working and have access to the hard drives / cd drives?

Try safemode, it may allow you network access.

Good luck


Thanks for the info, i had gave it a try and failed.
The network card is detected as nfe0: <NIVIDIA nForce 430 MCP13 Networking Adapter> port 0xf207 mem 0xfe02b000-0xfe02bfff irq 5 at device 20.0 on pci0
I found another 2 problems now.
When I use the first boot option, i cant make the card get a ip, neither the HD is detected (SATA).
And when I use safe mode i never boot, it halts tring to mount ufs:root....
the chipset of the mainboard is: NVIDIA® nForce® 650i SLI™
CD drive was detected as atapi.
