Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-08-03 16:59:18 UTC
That looks like a media issue.  I'd suspect the cd drive if you get this for
both f7 and f8.  Have you tried booting from a usb key instead?

Comment 3 John Poelstra 2007-08-03 18:11:53 UTC
I don't have a USB key large enough try :(

Not sure if this is a valid comparison, but I'll throw it out anyway... Ubuntu
7.04 works fine in the same drive and at one point during the Fedora 7 release
cycle, the live rawhide CD worked as well.

Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-08-07 20:22:49 UTC
Does it seem to boot really slowly as well?
If so, try the boot option "nolapic_timer"

Comment 5 John Poelstra 2007-08-09 23:46:39 UTC
It doesn't boot slowly.

Tried boot option suggested.  Still doesn't work with F8T1

Comment 6 Chuck Ebbert 2007-08-10 20:59:31 UTC
Was the disk tested on a working machine? Just load it and try "dd
if=/dev/<cddrive> of=/dev/null bs=32k" and let it run to completion.

Comment 7 John Poelstra 2007-08-21 17:36:40 UTC
no longer seeing this problem with F8T1 on the same notebook
