Description Rob Crittenden 2012-07-26 11:16:01 EDT
Description of problem:

The installation via anaconda went fine. Boot after install hangs at:

Loading initial ramdisk...

I'm not sure which boot options to change to get more details. I tried removing rhgb and quiet then Ctrl-x but got no additional output.

I installed in VMWare with 1024MB RAM, the OS type is Other Linux 2.6.x kernel 64-bit

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

VMWare 6.5.0 build-118166

What is the host system, for VMWare Workstation 6.5.0 ?
Comment 2 Rob Crittenden 2013-03-03 16:26:16 EST
I tried again with a newer build and it boots fine: RHEL-7.0-20130228.0-Server-x86_64

The host OS is, believe it or not, Fedora 8.
