If you are unable to access the installation media on OpenSUSE, it could be due to a problem with the installation media itself or with the device you are trying to install it on. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue:
- Check the integrity of the installation media:
- Insert the installation media (e.g. DVD or USB drive) into your computer.
- Open a terminal and run the following command to check the integrity of the installation media:
Replace “/dev/sdX” with the device name of your installation media (e.g. /dev/sda for a USB drive or /dev/sr0 for a DVD).
- Compare the output with the checksum provided by the OpenSUSE project. If the checksums do not match, it means that the installation media is corrupted and you will need to download a new copy and try again.
- Check the boot order in the BIOS:
- Restart your computer and press the key to enter the BIOS setup (usually F2 or Del).
- Navigate to the “Boot” or “Boot Order” menu.
- Make sure that the installation media (e.g. DVD or USB drive) is listed as the first boot device.
- Save the changes and exit the BIOS setup.
- Check for hardware issues:
- Make sure that the installation media is properly inserted into the drive and that the drive is working properly.
- If you are using a USB drive, try a different USB port or a different USB drive to see if that resolves the issue.
- If you are using a DVD, try cleaning the DVD and checking for scratches or defects.
If none of these steps help, you may want to try using a different installation media or a different computer to see if the issue persists. If the problem still persists, it could be due to a more serious hardware issue and you may need to seek further assistance.
