Can run from disk, but nothing happens when "Install to Hard Drive"


I've got Fedora 7 Live i386 on disk, and can boot up fine to the fedora environment but...

when I click "Install to Hard Drive", nothing happens? How can I install this as the primary operating system? Is there an alternate way?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Peter

double-click, maybe??

Or possibly right-click and select something like "run".

I have installed FC7 from live CD, so I really doubt that yours will be different.

tried that too

I did right click, and selected run, but still nothing. I'm perplexed.

I just booted from my FC7 disk an tried it. It works with double-click and right-click + open, but it is r e a l l y s l o o o o o w w w w .....

Another thing to try would be opening the terminal and typing "/usr/bin/liveinst"

One last thought: are you running the live linux from the image or from RAM? Mine was from RAM, if running from image, it might even slower.
