Did you verify your media? When it hangs, can you switch ttys?
Yes and no in that order.
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
Given this is an issue with the Fedora 7 installer and there has been no update
on this bug for three months, I am closing WONTFIX. You may wish to test with a
fedora unity re-spin:
which resolves a number of installer bugs. Thank you for taking the time to file
the initial bug.
