Description of problem:
I have a PC with a MSI K8N Neo motherboard, AMD64 2800+ CPU, Radeon
9600 graphics card. I'm also using SATA drives (no RAID). FC2 x86_64
installed fine on the box and I wanted to test out FC3 x86_64 test1.
Downloaded the CD's and tried to boot. The CD boots and as soon as the
syslinux message flashes to the screen -- the screen displays "white
noise/garbage" and I have to reset the box. I've tried downloading
the first CD from another location and I had the same results. I've
checked the MD5 checksum's on both of the CD's and they're fine. I've
seen one other person have the same problem with the same hardware on
the fedora-test mailing list.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD
2. Syslinux version message flashes
Actual Results: Screen goes to garbage
Expected Results: Should be presented with the syslinux prompt
Can you try with http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/boot-fc3-x86_64.iso?
Sure, I'll burn the new iso and try it tonight.
I tried the new iso image and it booted just fine. I don't know if
you wanted me to go ahead and try an install with but that's what I
did. I had to switch back to my original CD and it tried to do the
install but it didn't recognize my nForce SATA controller.
The nforce sata driver wasn't in test1 afair. I just wanted to make
sure the fix I have for isolinux stuff was working (and it is)
