I'm trying to install Centos 6.5 from CD as a dual boot on an old Acer Aspire PC with Windows Vista and an NVIDIA graphics card, but error message display during the setup. The errors refer to 'nouveau' and 'failed to idle channel'. From searching the web I believe I need to first install an NVIDIA driver, but how do I do that during setup? Btw I have minimal knowledge of Linux/Centos.
By clicking the down arrow (I think any key would work) it revealed a menu that allowed me to choose boot with basic video. When the screen loads I see there is an option to install the hard drive, but is that going give the same errors until the install references the NVIDIA drivers? Also the mouse and keyboard don't seem to work.
There is 50GB of unallocated space on the disk.
Can the install be set to use basic video?
UPDATE: Seems I have been using the 'Live' DVD, apparently I need the installation DVD, which I'm downloading.
