Still can not install BT on Acer 5100
So, I go here:
DL the installation file and install BT (live) to a 1 Gb flash drive.
I get the same error; the line flashes on (fills) the screen for ten minutes or so:
...drivers/alsa-driver hda/hda_codec.c:216 hda codec: invalid dep_range_va...
then installation completes. Everything seems to work; am om IRC, can use Firefox...
So, apparently it, the problem, wasn't either of the CDs I imaged from ISO.
I installed XP to a single partition, NTFS.
Now, gonna try install to HD again using the suggestions posted here, for which I thank you guys.
