I'm trying to install SUSE 11 sp1 (32 bit) on a 64 bit architecture and, while the installation finishes, it hangs on boot.

I get the error message  "probing EDD (edd=off to disable)...ok" and then it hangs.
I tried adding edd=off to the kernel line on boot, which makes the error message go away, but it still hangs.

Hi

Did you look at installing the 64bit system, but with the 32bit compatibility libraries?

This will keep the kernel happy, and emulate 32bit for the applications.
