Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123863
install kernel reboots immediately on Emachines 333cs (Trigem Delhi3 MB)

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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put 1st FC2 install CD in and boot from it.
2. At intro screen, press enter.
Reboots immediately and puts you back on the intro screen.
Should go to the next step in the install process.
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.
Cyrix M2 333.
Installed successfully using Arjan's c3boot-2.iso from bug #120685.
