I have a Dell Dimension 5100 which was running F7 very happily for some time. I wanted to upgrade it to F8. I downloaded the DVD ISO and burnt it to a blank disk. When the system boots from the DVD, I see the boot menu. I select either the Install/Upgrade or Install/Upgrade (text) option. I then get the "Loading vmlinuz..." and "Loading initrd.img..." messages followed by a "Ready." prompt. At that point the system hangs. The installation doesn't proceed. Has anyone else seen anything like whilst installing or upgrading F8? Any advice on how I can debug this problem?
Yes, there has been a very long discussion about this in the bugzilla report 372011.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=372011 Use the Fedora Unity respin which worked for me. Anyway, upgrades in Fedora are crappy (something to work on for Fedora 9).
