F9/64-bit on Mac Pro

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



I am trying to install F9 x86_64 on my new Mac Pro workstation (dual Intel Xeon quad-core + 4GB RAM), and it appears that none of the F9 installer discs detect its USB hardware correctly.
When I boot using the DVD or LiveCD, everything proceeds as usual, but
once I get to the media check screen, I cannot use my keyboard. From the
LiveCD, neither the keyboard nor mouse work. I've tried swapping out
different keyboards and mice, and even hot-plugging, but nothing worked.
Also, the media works fine; I installed F9/64 on my work Dell from the
same disc.
F9 32-bit works just fine on the Mac Pro, but naturally I cannot use my
4GB of RAM w/ a 32-bit OS. Also, I managed to install Ubuntu 64-bit, and
that worked without issue. While Ubuntu is currently working acceptably
well, I really do prefer Fedora, so I really want to find a way to make
it work.
Please let me know if there is any information I can provide, or if
there are any tricks I can try with GRUB.
Thanks in advance!
