Installation Failed!

I am trying to download the FC3, after select the keyboard options, the Bug Error came out. Click Ignore, then the system reboot it self.

1) Assertion (heads>0) at disk_dos. :485 in function probe_partition_for_geom() failed.

2) Assertion (sectors <= 63) at disk_dos:490 in function probe_partition_for_geom () failed.

Any solutions?

See "additonal comment 2" - ignore the naysayer at comment 5, who obviously had an actual hardware issue.


Can you try the update image at and see if that helps?

(Instructions for using an update disk are available at

It wasn't that difficult - and I got the install done flawlessly.
