Description IT REM 2004-06-28 18:58:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
In Fedora Core 2 screen with the boot options, I press 'enter'
for a normal installation. Then 'vmlinuz' and
'initrd.img' load and then the PC restarts.

I have P4 Northwood 2.8GH HT, with dual channel 400Mhz DDR (2 x 
512mb) checked with memtests (Mandrake10 and WinXP works),
Asus P4P800 Deluxe (latest bios), Intel 865PE chipset
SATA-HD(boot), ATA-HD, Samsung DVD/CD-ROM- and
Pioneer DVD+/-RW -drives, 3Club ATI Radeon 9600.

I have downloaded FC2 installation cd1 iso image three times
from differant mirrors, verified them and they seem to be ok.
This problem happens every time at the same stage.
I have tried installation with both optical dvd/cd -drives.
I have tried also  ide=nodma, noacpi and mem parameters.

Any suggestions?

Btw: I can install MandrakeLinux10, but not this FC2.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot pc with Fedora Core 2 installation cd 1
2. Press Enter for normal installation
3. Installation loads vmlinuz, then initrd.img and then reboots pc
