Check this link out -> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...kernel-464619/

Do you have a dual core system? If so and you have the stock fedora 7 kernel then you need to pass this to the kernel at boot "maxcpus=1"
So before it says booting, where it lists the kernel with the fedora background, hit escape then choose the option to modify kernel options. Append that "maxcpus=1" to the end of the line. This is what mine looks like:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.9-91.fc7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/ROOT rhgb quiet

So if I was appending, it would look like this
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.9-91.fc7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/ROOT rhgb quiet maxcpus=1

Yours doesn't have to say rhgb quiet either.

yes i have dual core system,

It is now booting. As suggested by U I just appended maxcpus=1
to

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.9-91.fc7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/ROOT rhgb quiet

problem solved

thanx for guidance
