Description of problem:
Just donwloaded the fedora core 3 test suite on to 4 CDs.
The installer recognizes the cd/dvd writer and the DVD rom. But Hangs
on trying to recognize the SATA drives. It hangs forever on the loop
like giving the following message
"hde lost interrupt".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora core3 Test CD installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just pop in the installation CD
2.Press enter for install
This also happens to me with Fedora Core 2 x86_64 installation.
Same motherboard, but only one SATA drive installed.
I've tried starting the installation with the noapic and nomce flags,
as suggested in various forums, but it doesn't seem to make any
any better with the latest updates ?
Yes, for me it was.
I had a system crash the other day (problem with grub-install not working with
latest kernel update RPMs) and stupidly wiped my MBR and patrition tables so had
to do a full reinstall. Anyway, the FC3 x86_64 CDs boot and installed no problem.
