Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 42661
7.1 Installer crasches after choosing type of installation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:33:27 EDT
Description of Problem:
I am trying to install Red Hat 7.1 on a HP VectraXU 5/p90 with 2x2GB SCSI
disks and a SCSI NEC CD-ROM. (Windows 98 is installed on the first disk)
Since I can't boot from the cd I made a diskette with boot.img and one
with drivers.img. When I boot from the diskette I press F2 and insert my
driver diskette when prompted for it. Then the installer finds the CD, but
the GUI failes to load, so it continues with text mode. I choose that I
want to install from the CD-ROM. When I choose any of the installation
types I get a kernel panic:
Kernel panic: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!
in interrupt handler - not syncing
I have also tried to install using the ISO files, but with the same result.

Did you check the md5sums of the ISOs? Can you look on VC3 and VC4 and see if
you see any error messages?
