Description of problem:
Install of FC3 from CD burned from iso fails with a kernel panic,
attempting to kill init, machine freezes. FC2 installed OK, kernel
update 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 works OK, kernel update 2.6.8-1.521 (and all
subsequent) failed in same manner after install.
iso image checked good against the md5 sum, and installed OK on my
otherAthlon machine, using a MSI KT3 Ultra ARU mobo.
What is non-standard about the nForce II chipset? Is it the SATA
controller? Will it work if I connect a PATA drive to the primary master?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD
Actual Results: install stops with kernel panic
Expected Results: Install
If someone can tell me how to capture the output of the install to a
file on a floppy, I will post it as an attachment.
