Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 218370
Can not install FC6 onto MS Virtual PC/Machine platform
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
I could not install FC6 on the MS Virtual PC/Machine (both of them) platform.
The graphical install was too large and the terminal based install produced a
kernal that would not boot.
I was able to install FC5 on the MS Virtual PC/Machine using the graphical
method before and I retested again after the FC6 failure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2 machines, several times with both MS Virtual PC and MS Virtual Machines, both
graphical and text based.
Steps to Reproduce:

Should I assume that no work will be done in the version, but possible work in
the next release of FC6? I have not heard anyting as of 12/6/06.
The reason that the installer will not run on virtual PC is that the graphics
card does not support 24 bit resolutions. You have to install FC6 via the
command line only option and then set the resolution back to 16 bit in the X11
requested by Jams Antill
Is this still a problem in F8?
