Description of problem:
When booting from RH 7.3 CD-ROM, a blank screen stays while reading the CD-ROM,
not getting to the screen where you choose what kind of instalation you want to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the CD-ROM into the machine
Actual Results: Blank screeen with a blinking cursor top left
Expected Results: Welcome screen to choose graphical or other installation
RH 7.0 and 7.1 work fine (with the linux apic parameter or course). Tried 7.3 on
other platforms working fine too.
ISP2150g BIOS version is 14.3 (latest)
Also latest are FRU, BMC, and HSC.
If you boot using a boot floppy created from the boot.img image does this work
Yes. Creating a boot floppy from boot.img in /images/ works as expected.
Now, I will only have to cope with the apic bug.
Ok, now I boot from my floppy, tell the boot loader linux apic, and then,
after choosing language and keymap and answering that the source is the CD-
ROM, it tells me:
Your Red Hat Linux CD was not found in any of your CD-ROM drives. Please
Besides, if I tell it that the source is the hard drive, it tells me that
there seems to be no hard drive in my system.
What went wrong from version 7.2 to 7.3?
What types of hard drives and controllers are in your system?
ISP2150G has an Intel L440GX+ motherboard with 21150 AGP-to-PCI Bridge and
PIIX4E, integrated AIC-7896, a TEAC CD-ROM as IDE primary master, and 2
Quantum Atlas 10K2 10GB SCA as drives 0 and 1.
Could you try booting with the command line 'linux apic'?
This is usually required for 440GX boards.
