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
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'.
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?
Testing with the RC tree would also be really useful, as a lot of kernel bugs
got killed between test3 and now.
I have same issues with my new Presario. However the Knoppix boot CD boots
perfectly. System Hardware Conf is given below...
