Description Eva 2004-02-01 20:00:28 UTC
* Description of problem:

I have installed Redhat 9 from ISO image CDs on my Compaq Presario 800
laptop (Intel Pentium 3 700MHz, 256 MB RAM). The install CDs are
valid, I ran mediacheck and also used the same CDs to install Redhat
on a different machine without problems.

Install was successful, there wer no issues or errors encountered.

During the boot process, it conistently hangs after 
Real Time Clock Driver v1.10e

I have found several bugs on this for older versions of the kernel,
but in those bugs hitting the Enter key would continue boot. In this
case boot cannot be continued.

I have tried booting into rescue mode from the CD, but only get a
blank blue screen after briefly seeing "Loading ohci1395 driver".

I have tried re-installing from the CD, but can't even boot of the CD
successfully anymore. It hangs on the first blank blue screen after
briefly seeing "Loading ohci1395 driver".

* Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.4.20-8

* How reproducible:
Boot computer
* Actual results:

Checking 'hlt' instruction... OK.
