Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 149206
System Won't Boot After SUCCESSFUL Graphical Install
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:17:02 EST
Description of problem: Make partitions, and install graphically. Successfully
completes, and I reboot by clicking the "reboot" button after install
completes. As it loads after reboot, system hangs after the Press 'I' For
Interactive Startup and Loading storage network audio (hang)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: I've tried reinstalling and repartitioning several times
with exact same result. It is frustrating because I am unable to boot to look
at what version of anything is running.
ABS laptop with Radeon Mobility 9700 on AMD 64 bit. I can't figure out how to
use a different driver for anything because I can't boot in any mode, so I
can't look or do anything.
Oh, and taking the "rhgb quiet" options after the kernel arguments didn't help
(Moving randomly to somewhere it'll get better triaged than gnome-desktop)
If you have any USB devices try unplugging them then plugging them in after the
kernel gets stuck. Another test is to try booting with the nousb kernel
parameter and see if it makes a difference...
