Fedora Core 7 (6.93) will not install in graphical mode in Virtual PC 2007
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem: Fedora Core 7 (6.93) will not install in graphical
mode in Virtual PC 2007
Anaconda starts, detects the video card properly (as an S3), and then fires off
the X Server. Nothing happens after that (the whole screen goes black and
there is no HD, CPU, or CD activity. If I hit Ctrl+Alt+F1, It switches to
text mode install, and I can install fine from there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install Virtual PC 2007 (I am using Vista X32 as a host), download ISO of
Fedora Core 7 (6.93), boot to install and choose graphical install
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Virtual PC 2007 (I am using Vista X32 as a host)
2.download ISO of Fedora Core 7 (6.93)
3.boot to install and choose graphical install
After anaconda detects video card, all of Virtual PC goes black, and nothing
Fedora should install in graphical mode
Odd. Can you attach the output of running 'lspci -n' from within the Virtual PC
Sure! Result is:
00:00.0 0600: 8086:7192 (rev 03)
00:07.0 0601: 8086:7110 (rev 01)
00:07.1 0101: 8086:7111 (rev 01)
00:07.3 0680: 8086:7113 (rev 02)
00:08.0 0300: 5333:8811
00:0a.0 0200: 1011:0009 (rev 20)
Okay, two more requests:
- the output of "lspci -vn -s 0:8"
- /var/log/Xorg.0.log from after trying to start X
If the log file doesn't exist, just try to run X (X :0), and then V switch using
Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get back to a text console.
Output of "lspci -vn -s 0:8"

As far as the Xorg.0.log... Virtual PC treats everything within as an image, so
I can't copy from that log file, I have to transcribe everything by hand (which
is SUPER hard seeing as the graphics are messed up, even in single user mode).
Is there a particular line (or lines) that you need from the Xorg log file?
Reporter, sorry I don't understand Virtual PC at all -- is not it possible at
least to copy+paste it to some web form (in such case, I would even lift up my
hatred against pastes into this bug form ;-)), or scp it out of the Virtual PC
to some real computer?
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
No information requested was provided, so I close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA.
Reporter, if you could, please, reopen with additional information.
