Description Andre Robatino 2004-05-20 20:59:13 EDT
Description of problem:
  The 1st install CD for FC2 boots and gets as far as the intro
screen.  But when making any choice and pressing enter, it immediately
reboots.

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


How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Put 1st FC2 install CD in and boot from it.
2.  At intro screen, press enter.
  
Actual results:
Reboots immediately and puts you back on the intro screen.

Expected results:
Should go to the next step in the install process.

Additional info:
I tried several kernel options - "linux text", "linux noprobe", "linux
acpi=off", etc.  No change.  (This MB/CPU combo doesn't work with APM,
so it had to be disabled.  I figured the same was probably true with
ACPI, but it doesn't matter whether I disable it or not.  I don't know
whether it's disabled by default in the install kernel.  I know APM
was normally disabled in previous install kernels, though FC1 was an
exception, and I had to disable it manually to do the FC1 install.)

what processor does this system have ?
If its a VIA C3, this is a dupe of 120685.
Comment 2 Andre Robatino 2004-05-24 07:35:01 EDT
  Cyrix M2 333.
Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2004-05-27 09:47:54 EDT
