'installation source' and 'software selection' both have the triangle. both read in gray 'checking software dependencies...'. this is third round, thought i would let it try to run it's course to see if it might pull thru, but has not. now, just over and hour, it is same as other attempts. clicking on 'begin installation' does nothing, nor does clicking other selections, including 'quit'. i can 'f2' to root user prompt. not knowing what else to try, i tried 'top' to see if it showed changing. it does, but i can not get back to installation screen. holding <alt> pressing one of the 'f' keys does bring up mouse pointer, but screen i am on does not change. typing in 'reboot' does reboot. suggestions? if you have called it a night, like do not reply in about 30 min, i will go back to command line and check just which 'f' keys does what and post back. thanks again for reply. greatly needed and much appreciate. -- peace out. -+- Tired of having your microsoft os hacked?
