Unable to install Fedora
I have a Sony PCG-FX120 on which I'm currently trying to install Fedora. Red Hat 9.0 was installed recently and I had no real major issues with its installation. Fedora however freezes shortly after begining the install immediately after passing the following line:
ACPI: Subsystem revision 20040816
I thought the CD was corrupt but I was able to install Fedora on a desktop box using the same CD. I'm thinking that it may be the BIOS and perhaps by updating it, if something is available, the install will work. My second theory is that there is some hardware conflict. Anyway, any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated as I am somewhat new to Linux.
EDIT: I just ran dmesg on the functioning Fedora box and after analyzing the log i saw the same line in regards to ACPI. The line immediately after it in the log was:
ACPI: Interpreter disabled
I'm going into the BIOS now to see if changing some of the ACPI settings will work prior to updating the BIOS
