Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 115571
FC2-test1 installation CD fails to boot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
Description of problem:
When I try and boot from the installation CD, I see the loading
vmlinuz and loading initrd messages, then the system reboots. It is
an old AMD-K6 system that I use for a testbed. I can boot a Sony Vaio
laptop from the same CD, and I verified the CD against the iso image.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from installation CD
Actual Results: Reboots before I actually see any messages from the
kernel boot process
Expected Results: Boot and run anaconda
I also tried a "linux text" boot with the same results.
Created attachment 97650 [details]
dmesg output from the system booting on a previous Slackware installation
As mentioned in the release notes, test1 won't boot on anything less
than a 686. This has already been fixed for future releases.
