Description of problem:
I have been unsuccessful in upgrading from 7.0 to 7.3. When I boot from the
7.3 cdrom the install fails when it attempts to load the "Journalled Block
Device Driver". If I boot from floppy disk with a boot image, the install
fails because "no linux partitions found". And yes, I've tried the "noprobe,
nofb, lowres, amp=off, noapic, mem=exactmap, mem=640K options- see Service
Request #208946 for details.
Compaq Proliant 1850R
1 GB RAM
4 10/100mb ethernet cards
2 18.2 GB hard disks
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from the cdrom
Actual Results: Install fails after loading Journalled Block Device Driver.
Expected Results: install should continue & give me the option to upgrade;
instead, install fails & entire computer "hangs"

You're tried 'linux text' as well?
Yes, I've tried "linux text" as well and that fails just as well.
This would appear to be a kernel related hang.
So, what's the next step?
is this an ide cdrom ?
Yes, this is an ide cdrom.
I have much the same setup and would like to see if there is a fix.
Do you have a status/update for me? (is anyone from RH even actively working
after over a year of inactivity, it would appear not.
Please refile if this hardware is still a problem with current distros.
Given we're EOL'ing RHL7 in a few weeks, I doubt very much you care
about installing it on this hardware any more.
