From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98)
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from cd or dvd
2. choose any installation option
3. wait a few seconds
Actual Results: reboot without warning
Expected Results: anaconda should find grafic card (I don't know if something
should happen inbetween)
Red Hat 7.2 installation is without problem (ATI rage 128 detected but I have a
ATI Xpert 2000 AGP).
With a SCSI card the last thing that is displayed "installing aic7xxx".
Behavior similar when removing hardware components (SCSI cards, second USB-PCI
card, second harddisk and CD-RW), but always rebooting. Twice a message was
displayed (only a second), then shutdown.
What type of motherboard do you have?
I have a spacewalker/shuttle motherboard with a PIII 700MHz and 256MB
Arjan do you have any suggestions, sounds like the aic driver is hanging?
I could make the installation using the installation image from 7.2.
But after grub the system rebooted to 80%, showed endless error messages (10%)
or displayed a kernel panic while initializing PCI cards (10%).
Then I removed all PCI card. The System came up perfectly.
When I inserted some cards, it seemed to work, if the SCSI card and an FRITZ!
PCI ISDN modem card were missing.
I could not test it all because after a reboot the computer gave some beep
codes. Now the grafic card (ati rage 128 AGP) isn't recognised anymore in the
hardware. With an old PCI grafic card another error is displayed: BIOS ROM
I have to buy a new computer (after two weeks of vacation).
Closing since this is certainly due to hw issues.
