Please try adding 'skipddc' to the boot command line for the installer.
Comment 2 Dan-Ove Moberget 2003-04-29 15:13:23 EDT
adding 'skipddc' to the boot command line did not make any change.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-12 17:45:45 EDT
Unfortunately we do not have this model of hardware to test with. The skipddc
probe option avoids any operations that would cause a monitor probe to occur.

If you can disable USB legacy emulation in your BIOS it might be worth trying.
