Description of problem:
When booting from the X86_64 DVD for Fedora 9 Preview, the install hangs at the ISOlinux line just after POST. The i686 version installed just fine. I have tried burning 4 DVDs off of 2 iso images downloaded separately. Both images check out with shasum. I have included the list of stock components in the F572US laptop:
1.7 GHz AMD Athlon ™ 64 X2 Dual-Core TK-53
1GB DDR2 Memory
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)
Super Multi 8X Dual Layer DVD±R/RW
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 9 Preview DVD
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the Fedora 9 Preview x86_64 install DVD into the DVD Drive
2.Boot the computer from the DVD
The computer Hangs with the line ISOLinux Blah Blah Blah... Just after post. The DVD Drive continues to spin for an indefinite amount of time.
The installer should have started and allowed the install of Fedora 9 Preview.
I'm seeing this too on my home server.
Any chance we can get a screenshot where it hung? Also, can you try that
without "quiet" in the boot parameters?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Actually, it never gets to a point where one can modify kernel parameters. It
hangs before grub appears. Right after
