Description of problem:
Boot off FC2-test1-i386 CD from IDE DVD-ROM drive on an ASUS
P4R-800-VM motherboard (ATI 9100 IGP chipset).
Problem occurs in both text mode and graphical
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off CD
2.Wait for it to reach Run /sbin/loader
Does booting with 'linux nopcmcia' help?
Tried booting with both 'linux nopcmcia' and 'linux noprobe'
still dies at Running /sbin/loader, no obvious difference.
Good news: can get past Running /sbin/loader if I disable the on-board
USB EHCI controller
Bad news: this disables my USB mouse so it is not a solution.
I have the same problem with a USB mouse plugged in it hangs at
/sbin/loader. If I have a PS/2 mouse plugged in, it boots fine &
installs fine, even if that PS/2 mouse is the same mouse with the USB
to PS/2 adapter installed.
Does this continue to happen with test2?
Problem appears to have been resolved by a combination of test2 and
BIOS upgrade to system.
