Description of problem:
I downloaded the FC2 ISOs and burned them using X-CDROAST on my FC1
machine. The boot CD is recognized and the boot prompt comes up.
When I hit ENTER, the boot loader starts loading vmlinuz, loading
initrd and then the screen goes blank and the machine reboots.
If I try with different parameters I got the same results.
The MD5 checksums of the images are OK. The disk verifies OK and can
install on my Dell Laptop.
As a test I have tried to boot from FC2 Rescue Cd, with the same
results. Knoppix 3.4 boots fine with 2.4 and 2.6 Kernel.
My machine :
ASUS P4P800S mainboard (Intel 848P chipset; onboard audio disabled)
P4 2.6 GHz (HyperThreaded(TM))
2 x 256 MB DDR400 RAM (Single Channel)
ATi Radeon 9200 graphics card
RealTek RTL8139 NIC (on board)
Creative SoundBlaster Live! Value
Maxtor ATA133 80GB IDE1 Master
Maxtor ATA133 30GB IDE2 Master
LG Combo Drive GCC-4480B
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert boot CD (FC2 Final CD 1)
2. Start the Computer
3. Wait for the boot prompt to come up
4. Hit ENTER or type linux plus parameters and then hit ENTER
Actual Results: Reboot
Expected Results: Should Boot and startup graphic Installer
Hi, I also cant install Fedora Core 2 final on my machine, its a
Pentium 4 3 Ghz, p4p800 Deluxe, 1GB RAM, 1x120GB Seagate SATA drive,
ATI Radeon 9600. When I try to install Fedora the system is rebooted
while the kernel is descompressed.
Just additional infos :
With this machine I can boot :
SUSE LIVE EVAL CD 9.1 (Kernel 2.6.4)
- Hope it helps
I too, can't install it on my pc. it has a p4p800, PIV 2.6GHz, 2x256
RAM, 80Gb WD-hdd.
i could install fedora core 1, but fc2 doesnt install on it.
I am also experiencing the same issue:
ASUS P4P800 Deluxe
Intel Pentium IV 2.6C GHz
1 GB RAM (Corsair TWINX1024-3700PT)
Hitachi 160GB SATA Internal Hard Drive
NVidia GForce4 MX graphics card
I've validated the boot CD on another machine and it's fine.
I thought i am the only one who cant install fedora2.
i have a P4P800, P4 2.6GHz
i installed it on another pc and it worked.
but on my computer it reboots.
i tried another options but they didn't work
i hope theres a solution for it.
