disk boot failure after installing fedora core 2
 
i'm new to linux and i want to try installing fedora core 2 to my desktop.

i don't make dual boot (i used windows xp previously) instead i delete all partition and install fresh fedora core 2.

after finish all step of installing and reboot..thing apperaed at my screen:

"Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM:
Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk And Press Enter"

I expect there will be another installing instrucions(...post intstalling?..or setup agent..?)so i just press Enter to ignore it, but the same text appeared ( Disk Boot Failure....)

Then , I insert Fedora Core 2 DVD.it lead to upgrade or reinstall.i've tried both...after reboot...same text appeared(Disk Boot Failure....).

i don't know what to do.

:confused:

i try inserting windows CD to install windows xp back..but " Disk Boot Failure...." appeared.Only Fedora DVD can be iserted .
what i'm supposed to do?:scratch:

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Fedora Core 2 is now old and unsupported. Try a newer distribution like Fedora 7.

Hello, Have you tried testing the media to see if you have a bad cd image? It could be possible that the cd is bad and is causing the OS not to install properly, or it could be that the cd drive itself is bad. If that doesn't pan out, you can always try to run a the manufacturers disk diagnostics to determine if your drive is failing,sometimes this can be the case as well. Oh and yeah, the above distro is unsupported.

maybe...
 
maybe you're right:
i use an old dvd-rw and the fc2 also is old..i know that the latest distro is fc7 but i afraid that my hardware-requirement can't
accept it. these are some informatio about my desktop:

2.4Ghz
256 RAM (but reduced to 224 coz share with graphic/video card)
pentium4
old dvd-rw
old cd-rw
bought in year 2004

This may be an indication of what's going on, but it's beyond me.
Doesn't seem like a Fedora problem, looks a bit more like bios to me.

Did you reset bios to boot the hard drive after the install process, could you have done something strange then??
