Description of problem:
I am trying to install the 64-bit version of FC6. When installing FC6 on an IDE HD PATA 320GB Western Digital (completely blank, and after disconnecting SATA drive with Windows on it) in an HP Pavilion a1610n system (AMD AM2 X2 4200+ full specifications available from HP) the installer hangs at probing ide0. I tried running with "noprobe" but installer does the same thing.
Motherboard is a special ASUS motherboard made for HP. Asus reference: A8M2N-LA.
Google search did not show anything for the problem. I guess I'm the first to try this! I did verify the download and the media before installation.
Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
I was able to install the same FC6 on a VMWare VM. But it's not the same as running it natively...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.put FC6 DVD in drive
2.boot from DVD
installer hangs at probing ide0
installer should continue
I get the exact same results on FC5 x86_64 with an HP Pavilion a1600n.
Here's a link to the machine specs:
Sorry that should have been FC6 X86_64, not FC5.
