I just went through the FC7 install and I saw the DOS prompt a couple of times using a DVD that worked flawlessly earlier. In that, I was sure that the DVD was OK. I powered down, let the system idle for about 10 mins, rebooted, and never saw the DOS prompt again.

However, if you never had success with the DVD, I would review the DVD burning process. Hope its R+W. Good Luck!

When the F7 DVD boots, it offers you the opportunity of checking the correctness of the DVD, so why don't you do that? And if you can't use graphic mode for the install, well, then use text mode. I just used the F7 DVD to install in text mode -- works fine.


dos, dvd, fedora, prompt
