Description of problem:
I've filed atleast one bug report on an earlier FC release and/or test versions which have this problem. Problem being that grub won't boot linux on my old Intel systems, such as TC430HX (Tucson) or (Marl) motherboards. I think it was FC1 that had this working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to boot a Fedora Core installation on an intel TC430HX botherboard
2.Grub displays a prompt for commands and won't boot
Actual Results: Grub displays a prompt and won't boot.
Expected Results: Should have booted the OS, like on newer systems with the same HD.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.
Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
