Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113016
Problems installing Fedora
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
This is the first time i've tried to install linux (Redhat Fedora
downloaded 24th Dec 2003) but I'm having some problems getting the OS
operational. I've created the 3 install disks & checked them to ensure
no errors. Everything goes ok with the install until i reach the
welcome screen when my computer totally freezes. This is the furthest
point i've reached during install and after many attempts of reinstall
following full reformats of the partition. I can run Windows based
operating systems no problem (first time, every time!).
My system consist of the following.
Asus A7N8X deluxe motherboard with the latest 1007 bios. LS120 drive,
Ricoh Mp5125a DVD writer, Aopen DVD1640 DVD reader, Creative Audigy 2
Platinum sound card, AMD Athlon 2700+, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics
128MB Graphics card, 512MB (2x256MB) DDR400 memory operating in dual
channel mode, Western digital WD1200JB 120GB hard drive. Enermax
431Watt power supply. I've tried installing using my mouse & keyboard
in both the USB & PS2 ports but with still no success. In the bios the
internal 3com Lan is enabled but the nvidia lan, internal Sound &
onboard SATA (motherboard jumper) are disabled.
Any replies would be most welcome
