Pentium 4 Vs. Fisher
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:40:36 EDT
Cant get Fisher to install on Pentium 4 - 1.4GHz CPU.
Hangs just after kernel init or during in both text and graphics install
what is the manufacturer of this machine?
This is an intel Demo unit for testing it has the D850GB board in it and
128MB of ram supplied by them.
WD 20 GB hard drive and ati 3d charger 4MB video. Nothing special.
You need to make sure you have a *shipping* P4 processor with all microcode
updates in the BIOS.
I got fisher to run by installing on another machine....celeron....and
physically putting that hard drive into the p4 and reconfiguring. I guess this
means the install just wont run because I have it up and running fine with the
BTW I checked with intel it is a shipping cpu and the microcode is right.
I have the same results when trying to install 7.0 retail on the machine
that's actually good news. :) What's the SN and PN from the 850 MB?
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
No, glen, we can't. It is a hardware issue. Red Hat Linux 7 hangs the same way.
Still waiting to hear back from bug reporter.
closing - can't reproduce this on any of our P4 hardware on any RHL release.
