Description of problem:
Basically, I boot up from the dvd and get the boot>
If I press enter to enter the graphical setup, I immediatly get a Kernel Panic.
If I try to do a media check, using "linux mediacheck", I immediatly get a Kernel Panic.
I haven't tried to start the installer in text-mode, but I really don't expect it to work.
Tried using acpi=ht, still the same result. (I'm using a P4)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot up from dvd
2.press enter at the boot> promt
Actual Results: This is what I see:
Code: c8 fc ff 8b 45 4c 3d 3c 4b 24 1d 74 90 e8 8e ca fc ff 8d 55 4c 50 52 68 6a 01 00 00 68 88 c0 37 c0 68 28 4b 37 c0 e8 c5 c8 fc ff <0f> 0b 1e 01 88 c0 37 c0 e9 7b fe ff ff 8b 54 24 3c 8b 44 24 08
<0>Kernel Panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init!
It just stops there.
If there was anything before that, I couldn't see it, and shift+pgup didn't work.
Expected Results: To enter the graphical install enviroment.
the system is an HP pavilion 1080.se
Motherboard is listed as "MS-6577", though I think it's a remaned asus.
I'm currently running FC 2
Ah, right, forgot to mention, The media is sound. sha1 checks out, as does the
md5-sums for allt the images on the disc. checked all files in /images
/images/pxeboot and /isolinux
Same problem here, but only on machines with Intel 915 chipset (and SATA disks if that is of
relevance). The first error message I was able to see complained about "Unable to mount root disk"
