I attempted to install Fedora 22 from a net install CD. The following messages were displayed several times;
"blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 915456"
"Buffer I/O error on dev sr0, logical block 114432, async page read"
It then entered emergency mode and displayed "Warning: could not boot. Warning: /dev/root does not exist". I typed "exit", and the above happened again.
Thinking that perhaps the CD wasn't burned correctly, I made a new CD using a different machine, but got the same results.
Finally, I tried using an older CD burned in July 2015, and it booted successfully.
Perhaps the most recent iso file no longer supports this hardware (info attached)?
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
