Description of problem:
I downloaded and the 4 CD's necessary for installation. I had Fedora
Core 1 successfully installed. On trying to install Fedora Core 2 I have
the following problem (which re-occurs EVERY time (3 in all) I try to
install). I have formatted my 20 Giga disk and tried again but still
the same problem.
I tested all 4 disks and they got the "pass" mark when tested.
Everything goes well until the third disk. Somewhere in the middle of
the installation there, the computer reboots and doesn't complete the
installation. When the computer restarts it says no OS available. If I
put the first disk back in, it will appear to reinstall (or repair),
asking for the third disk again. This time the installation ends soon
and I get
after booting.
No way can I get past this shutdown.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.check the disk I downloaded
2.start computer with first CD in place
3. I choose install everything
4.Everything goes reasonably well
5. Somewhere in the installation of the third disk, the computer reboots.
6. Cannot get past this stage.

Additional info:
 I had Fedora Core 1 installed on that computer and it worked fine.

I have now managed to install Fedora Core 2. The way I worked around
the problem described above is by installing teh program by using the
"linux text" option. This worked fine. Why the GUI way threw me out on
the third disk is still a mystery.

Changing component to something more appropriate...
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-25 23:16:44 EDT
Could you boot the CD with 'memtest' to test the memory on the machine?
Comment 4 Errol Sapir 2004-05-26 06:33:28 EDT
I ran memtest for 3 hours which resulted in 5 passes with NO errors.
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-07 14:26:58 EDT
Does this still happen with Fedora Core 3 test releases?
