Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443181
Fedora 9 Preview installer fails to start in graphics mode
Last modified: 2008-04-21 17:32:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to start the installation on my system freezes the system with the
last line of output reading
pci 0000:00:0x.x: Enabling HT MSI Mapping
In several attempts at starting the installer, it has failed at this stage, with
1 to 5 lines of the above form. Text mode does start, and the installation
medium passes the test. The graphical installer does start on a different
machine with the same DVD.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 Preview, x86_64 DVD
Happens every time I attempt to install from the DVD.
Steps to Reproduce:
Installer crashes the system in a non-responsive state.
Installer works and I get to run Fedora 9 Preview.
Basic system specs
Dual dual-core Opteron 2212
2 GB RAM
nVidia MPC55 chipset
Updating my bios to the most recent revision has fixed this problem, and the
installer now loads correctly.
Closing, then. Thanks for the update!
