Description of problem:
When trying to install Redhat 9 from verified CDs, the kernel loads, I see the
text install menus rather than the graphic install, I'm presented with the "do
you want to check your media" screen, and then everything hangs.
Tried booting with noprobe and nofirewire, but doesn't help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Turn on computer
Actual Results: Kernel loaded, text install screen displayed offering to check
Expected Results: Normal install
I guess I am confused on how you have verified the CDs if the mediacheck hangs?
If you have USB legacy support enabled in your BIOS you might try turning it off.
The media was verified on another machine.
You were completely right - when I disabled legacy USB support, install
This would appear to be a BIOS or kernel issue.
