Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 375091
Last modified: 2008-02-07 12:52:45 EST
Description of problem:
The problem looks similar to the problem described in "Bugzilla Bug 221658":
I'm using a "MSI MEGABOOK M670", see (German page)
Fedora 6 worked fine up to some upgrade, after that I it didn't boot telling me
"Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work! Boot with apic=debug
and send a report. Then try booting with the noapic option"
like in the other report mentioned above. Adding the noapic-option in the
/boot/grub/grub.conf "solved" the problem.
Now I tried to install Fedora 8. When inserting the Fedora 8 DVD I got the options
2) Install (text mode)...
A few seconds after choosing one I get the same error message -- there is no
longer any chance to use the noapic-option to avoid the problem.
Installing Fedora 7 worked fine.
You can press the [tab] key to edit the install disk boot options.
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I think I'll just close this one...
