Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-06-09 15:06:59 UTC
Please describe the nature of the hang, as that is a word that can refer to many different problems.  Is the machine responsive at all?  Are the keyboard LEDs blinking?  Can you switch ttys to get log files?

Can you reproduce this with something more recent than beta 1, which is getting pretty old now?

Comment 4 Igor Zhang 2010-06-10 02:35:35 UTC
I386 was installed successfully on this machine.
I installed it from pxe server in lab. Currently the latest rhel6 version on pxe server is beta-1.
So I'll figure out other ways to reproduce or verify this problem.

Comment 5 Igor Zhang 2010-06-10 13:49:47 UTC
Via a cdrom with boot.iso on it, I install beta-2 successfully on this machine  from http server and it runs well till now.

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2010-06-10 14:45:54 UTC
I don't quite understand comment #5.  Are you saying it's now fixed, or that it's still problem but you are able to work around via the boot.iso?

Comment 7 Igor Zhang 2010-06-11 09:32:16 UTC
I don't know if this problem is fixed or not. I just know beta-2 can be installed on this machine.
