Lucky you, AeroGT3. You are succeeded to overcome the trouble, but not mine. The installation still prompts me the warning that it unable to find any devices and so on. I have done all the step I read from the thread but it is still so.

My mobo is intel with 1,8 GHz Dual Core processor and my harddrive is serial ATA from Seagate 80 GB.

Please, give me some more information that may be useful for me to install fc in my PC. Thank you for any replies.

Fedora 7, delusion. Installation problem.

I used without problem FC6 on this PC but I've got installation problem with FC7.


Trying to install FC7 on my PC I get to the point where it says "What type of media contains the packages to be installed."

I enter CDROM and I am prompted with the following:

"Unable to find any device of the type needed for this installation type."

I'm prompted to manually select from a set of drivers. I tried that and all failed. It says I can "use [a] driver disk," but that doesn't work either.

tryed with this workaround without luck.
linux all-generic-ide irqpoll pci=nommconf

Please help.

To avoid that problem, copy F7 iso on a temp partition, install Fedora 7 from that partition, recompile kernel to avoid the problem with cdrom drive.

Thumbs up DVD problem

I looked at the following thread, linux*****questions.org/questions/showthread.php?p=2564231

I changed my drive config from IDE to AHCI, which didn't change anything. I have an Asus P5B-E (P965 NB and ICH8R SB). One SATA 7200 HDD with a single partition for windows and 100 GB free space. I'm totally new to the whole Linux thing, but if you guys can tell me if its a driver issue and where I can find them, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

I just installed FC6 on a Sony vaio from DVD that I burned with Vista. When I tried to install FC7, I used a DVD that I burned on the same computer, but under FC6. I am getting the same error: "unable to find any device of the type needed for this installation type..." I downloaded the iso a couple of times, verified the size, should be no problem there. The DVD-RW under Vista was working well, but under FC6, I suppose not. The only way I can get this DVD is using growisofs or k3d(same). I think the DVD is not burned correctly. When I install, it loaded loaded the kernel and some drivers, complained not finding rc2, and went to the above error message. This FC7 installation is weird cos it didn't give chance to type any options like several previous versions. I no longer have the vista any more, but I think burning the iso DVD of FC7 with Vista (like I just did with FC6) might fix the problem. Maybe someone can point to a different way to burn iso DVD on FC6? or maybe a way to install from the iso image on an external drive? Thanks!

"Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this...". I now know that my FC6 and DVD are fine. If I use my DVD growisofc on my FC6 to burn an FC6 iso that I downloaded, if installs without a problem. On the contrary, if I try to to the same with FC7, it just would not work this way. Good to know this, got to try some other way.

3. install the 2.6.18 driver provided by using default instructions outlined by jcliburn;
