FC6 Test 1: Install from DVD does instant reboot at end of reading initrd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
Install from DVD does instant reboot at end of reading initrd
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every attempt fails
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot DVD, or rescue CD
2. At prompt type (eg) "linux install"
You get the "loading initrd and ....", at the end of the load the screen is
erased, and a second or so later the machine goes into cold boot.
It _should_ show the usual reams of boot info
It only fails on the older of my two boxes, this box will happily run with the
FC5 installer, and passes the FC5 memcheck86.
Box specs: K6-II, 384M, VIA Apollo VP3 chipset.
Any suggestions for parameters etc to try and point to the cause?
I can hack initrd if it would help.
I forgot to mention - Matrox G200 graphics card
Test1 did not have an i586 kernel and thus wasn't functional on K6-2 class
systems. This should be resolved for test2
