Description Asten Rathbun 2004-07-28 22:22:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

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):

How reproducible:

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?
Comment 2 Asten Rathbun 2004-08-03 14:02:37 EDT
Yes, the most current bios is installed on the system.  I will obtain
and try i386 CD1 this evening.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-22 15:52:52 EDT
This should work with tets2.
