Problem installing FC5 on Athlon
Hi. I decided to upgrade my Athlon from FC3 to FC5. I put the distro DVD
in the drive and booted from it. I get the initial splash screen and boot:
prompt. I then press return and the system starts loading but then stops
with the messages:
ide-cd: cmd 0x5a timed out
hdc: lost interrupt
then it seems to wait occasionally spitting out the same message. I tried
to replace the DVD drive but with the same result. I then tried the CD
version of the distro but got the same thing. Finally I gave up and upgraded
to FC4 which went without a hitch.
Is this s known problem with FC5? It there a magical incantation I need?
The system has an Asus a7V8x motherboard with an Athlon processor and a
MSI DVD writer.
