Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159920
FC4 installation CD does not boot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:07 EST
Description of problem:
The default boot of the FC4 install CD on a MSI 915G Neo2 (MS-7028-10A) and a
Intel D915GUX Board (both Intel 915G Chipset) fail with a kernel-panic if you
just hit "Enter" in the isolinux of the install CD.
If you type random stuff in isolinux and hit "Enter" isolinux naturally fails.
But If you then hit "Enter" once again the kernel and the installer start
normally and I was able to install FC4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
with kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and isolinux <unknown>
Install on a 915GM Notebook worked fine. Also tyring to start the install-cd a
945P-Boards worked fine.
RAMDISK: Couldn't find a valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
and then it complains that Linux cannot find the new root device. I'll try to
get a digi-cam to give a screenshot.
Presumption: isolinux somehow does not put the initrd at the right memory-adress
or the kernel can't find it where it is/should be.
