Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19123
installation crashes (for anaconda and text based)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:21 EDT
I have a hp pavilion 6370 computer. Has 600 mhz cpu intel 810 chipset 10
gb hd. When I ran anaconda to install, even though it says before loading
anaconda ps/2 mouse found, my mouse is frozen on the screen and i can't
continue the installation. (my mouse works fine under redhat 7.0)
Then i ran text mode inst. and during the bootup kernel commands screen i
hit f1 to receive help, (i have lba enabled for my hd) after waiting for
about 3-4 minutes with my harddisk struggling, i received the message an
error occured aborting installation, report the bug to redhat (or
I queried the bugzilla but couldn't find any bugs referring to these
issues. If they are already reported, i apologize.
If you don't hit F1 for help how far can you proceed into the text mode install?
Actually, on my other attempt at installation, the mouse worked fine. I have no
idea why it didn't at my first install.
The text mode install is okay. If I don't hit the F1 key at that point, I can
finish the installation without any problems. The F1 works fine for other inst.
Do you have a Microsoft Intellimouse or any other kind of wheel mouse?
