Hi all, I tryed to install BBQ from a usb key but when it starts to copy the files the screen fades to black.

Chipset Intel PM45

Re: Black screen during installation

Just that i'm getting that right...
You're getting a black screen after the installer has started the copying process?
Which ISO are you using?
Is it maybe the screensaver?

Yes. The last thing i saw (for less than a second) it's "Appearance Settings" or something like that..I don't remember.

Re: Black screen during installation

The installer doesn't have any appearance settings.

This is the installer:

I know..I follow all the steps until the installation process starts (showing me the progress bar)...
I get a black screen when the installation it's about 80-85%

You are indeed one green newbie . . . big_smile Just hit the keyboard & it will come out from screensaver mode or you could also try keep on moving the mouse when it is about to reach 78% then it won't go into screensaver mode . . . tongue

Re: Black screen during installation

Screensaver is disabled by default on latest ISO.

I am still thinking how BBQLinux can be useful to a "green newbie"! LOL. I know what is a screensaver and of course i tried moving the mouse or hitting the keyboard..
However, since I wasn't able to fix that issue, I decided to migrate to Archlinux.. I will continue to follow BBQLinux project.. Cya!

Re: Black screen during installation

Your question seems green so presume you're a green newbie . . . lol You should have titled it Black screen during installation (Tried everything) & spell out whatever techniques you've tried . . . cool

Fyi, i've tried the Arch way two years ago, couldn't get it to boot, end up using Ubuntu, painfully learn to setup the BE, end up followed the wrong guide on XDA, only last year found out how to build android & only found out about BBQLinux this March 2014 . . . tongue With BBQLinux, you don't need to setup the BE, just sync the source & start building . . . wink

Trust me, the Arch way is even painful than setting up the BE & Native-Boot, you'll have better luck with BBQLinux on VirtualBox than any other Arch Distro . . . cool
