Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123727
Install Disc1 causes reboot on VIA M10000
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:45:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Computer reboots/resets immediately after the boot prompt of Fedora
Core 2 final when booted from installation disc1 on a VIA EPIA M10000
motherboard. The same computer installed and ran Fedora Core 2 Test 3
without issue. The same Fedora Core 2 final installation media works

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 installation disc 1
VIA EPIA M10000 motherboard.

1. Boot from installation disc1
2. At boot prompt hit enter or "linux text" enter
3. Computer reboots immediately
Installation continues without reset.

Test 3 was able to do a graphical install for the first time. I
don't know if Fedora Core 2 final is more or less sensitive to
graphics hardware or if indeed this has anything to do with the reset
I have the same problem on an Asus P4P800 Deluxe. The CD was tested
and booted fine on another system. It installed Fedora Core 1 and
Windows 2000 without an issue.
It crashes immediately after "Loading initrd.img.............". It
seems to start displaying text on the next screen but it reboots
before I can see it (even with the Pause/Break key).
Same problem as in bug #123831 with the VIA ezra.
With that hardware also on "loading the initrd.img ......." it just
