Description Scott 2004-10-14 22:05:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; (R1 
1.3); .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
Compaq Presario SN1020NX 
Celeron 2.8 GHz, 512 MB ram, motherboard is unknown.

When I installed official Fedora 2.0 release. 
Computer reboots immediately after 'loading initrd.img'.

So I tried a few workarounds. For example, using a workaround CD 
suggested by a few people 
the computer still reboots immediately after 'loading initrd.img'.

Finally, I decided to get a try to Fedora 3.0 test release (10-5-
04),  same thing happens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3-test3-i386-disc1.iso   05-Oct-2004 21:43   610M  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put the FC3-test3-i386-disc1.iso into CD-ROM
2. Reboot PC
3. Computer reboots immediately after 'loading initrd.img'.

Additional info:
Office Fedora 2.0 release as well as popular workaround CD image
cause the same reboot effect as the exact same place.

Does rawhide fare any better?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2004-10-27 05:15:41 UTC
Testing with the RC tree would also be really useful, as a lot of kernel bugs
got killed between test3 and now.
