Update2: Fedora Install Failure

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



I also checked the Looonnnggg thread on the bug report for the p4p800 class 
mother board... At first glance this is not the same problem.... My linux seems 
to boot up during install, but the installer seems to die... I get the Blue 
screen (Fedora Core on top left) with prompts on how to proceed/select items, 
etc.

After some initial messages about initializing usb, sata, etc (I will have to 
try and capture the sequence) The box appears to hang...  Disk Light on for 
about a minute or 2... Then 

Poof... Junk characters all over the screen and nothing... No keyboard, no num 
lock, etc... Hard reset...

The box is currently running Win xp and Redhat 9 on separate hard drives with 
boot floppy... 

Also Video card is OLD compared to rest of hardware... 4M S3 pci card.  This 
was my first thought due to the funny characters...

Thanks for your patience...(And sorry about the subject problem...)
