Are you sure the DVD is burned properly? What happens when you try the text mode installer?

OK, instead of running startx, do this:

Code: Select all
# mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /dev/shm
# mount -t devpts devpts /dev/pts
# /etc/init.d/xprep start


This should solve your issues.

mount: mount point /dev/shm dose not exist.

It might be your hardware configuration. Everything works after installation, right?
