Description of problem:
When attempting a graphical install of FC2 on the hardware listed, the
Install hangs at the intial X Fedora Core Logo Screen.
Cannot Ctrl-Alt-Fn anywhere.
Tried booting with "linux" "linux reiserfs" "linux noacpi nofb" "linux
reiserfs noacpi nofb", all hang. Also tried booting to text install
with the same options as above, just adding "text" in the string.
This install option goes through probing hardware then hangs at
"Disabling IRQ #3", same symptoms of not being able to Ctrl-Alt-Fn
Disabled USB legacy support in the BIOS. Disabled the serial port in
the BIOS. Reserved IRQ 3 in the BIOS. This simply changed the text
install hang to "Disabling IRQ #4" or "Disabling IRQ #9".
I have FC2 installed on 3 other computers, all installed fine with the
CD's and a created DVD from the mkdvdiso.sh script.
The install media PASSes the install check.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD 1
2. Skip test the media and proceed with the install
3. Install hangs
Actual Results: Install hangs at Fedora Core in graphical install
logo or at "Disabling IRQ #3" in text install.
Expected Results: Install should continue as normal.
Asus A7V600-X motherboard
Maxtor SATA hard drive
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro
1GB Kingston RAM
Replaced the hard drive. Install completed normally. Closing as this
was related to bad hardware.
