Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19447
Computer frozen during installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:25 EDT
I am installing Red Hat Linux 7.0 workstation in my PC. I use
partitionless installation because I want to save my windows 98 platform
in the computer.
During the installation, I got error window and the computer was frozen.
The following is the message:
The error title:
An exceptional condition has occured. This is most likely a bug. Please
copy the full text of this exception and file a bug report at
The error message body:

Here, I use "......" because the rest of message could not be seen when I
click the scroll bar (all of components on the screen are frozen, I can
move the mouse, but no response wherever I click it). From the size of the
slide in the scroll bar, I will say not much message lost, may be one or
My machine is e-machine with intel Celeron processor, 127MByte RAM,
12GByte hard drive (about 5GBytes was used for windows98 and softwares).
I tried two times for installation, and got same error.
Would you give me some suggestions about this?
Could you give us step-by-step the sequence you used to reach the point where
the computer hung?
yes, more information would be helpful, as we are unable to reproduce this
problem in our test lab here (using a celeron 500Mhz w/64Mb, performing a
partitionless install) ...
