Description of problem:
There is not much more to say about it: the system hangs. Only a cold 
boot helps by then.

I've tried to install Fedora with the same disks on a different 
system and succeeded.

I've tried 'nofb': almost the same result only the screenmode seems 
to change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just startup the system with the first cdrom

Actual Results:  system halts

Expected Results:  the first screen of anaconda should appear, i guess

Additional info:

Tried 'nousb' just now.
It got me one step further:
It got me on a screen in textmode saying:
Welcome to Fedora Core

Loading SCSI-driver
loading ata-piix driver ......

Then system hangs again

Can you try booting with 'linux noprobe' and see which module load
causes the hang?
Comment 3 Ton Mol 2004-02-27 13:44:36 EST
There is no difference: the system still hangs 
after 'running /sbin/loader'.
So which module causes the hang it's hard to say for me.
These are the last lines:
Anaconda installer init version 9.2 start....
mounting /proc filesystem... done
mounting /dev/pts (unix 98 pty) filesystem... done
trying to remount root filesystem read write... done
mounting /tmp as ramfs... done
running install...
running /sbin/loader

Changing severity from "translation" to "normal", to keep this bug
away from the translators.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-05 12:02:54 EDT
This shouldn't be a problem with newer releases.
