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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
Mainboard: Elitegroup PF1 deluxe
Processor: Intel P4 2.8 GHz
Memory: 512 MB
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda Serial Ata V - 120 gb
Quantum Fireball 1200 MB
Sound: Creative Soundblaster Audigy LS
Graphics: Asus 9560XT/TD
Tried 'nousb' just now.
It got me one step further:
It got me on a screen in textmode saying:
Welcome to Fedora Core
loading ata-piix driver ......
Then system hangs again
Can you try booting with 'linux noprobe' and see which module load
causes the hang?
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
Changing severity from "translation" to "normal", to keep this bug
away from the translators.
This shouldn't be a problem with newer releases.
