Description of problem:
I burnt a dvd image of the FC3T1 X86-64 ISO, and it boots to the text
installation menu under
System is a Athlon64 3200+ on a Abit KV8 Pro motherboard, 1G ram.
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
DVI connection to Dell 2000FP LCD
I have also tried booting with both this and a 19" CRT plugged in,
with only the CRT (along with the original attempts with just the
LCD). All methods result in the same static "snow" coming up on
whichever screen(s) is/are connected.
From here, i tried typing "linux text", but nothing happened. I am
unable to see any text past the "Boot from CD" that the bios prints.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot DVD, that's it
Actual Results: Snow on the screen, unable to find any means to
Expected Results: The installation menu prompting a graphical or
text installation should show
Do you have the most current BIOS for the system installed? Does the
i386 CD1 (or boot.iso) boot?
Yes, the most current bios is installed on the system. I will obtain
and try i386 CD1 this evening.
This should work with tets2.
