FC 4,5,7 Installation Hangs on Formatting Drive
 
Hi,

I have the following issue with a server i'm trying to set up.I have treid FC4,6 and 7.I don't like FC5,so i skipped that one,but i'm sure it would have done the same.The installation goes fine,and then it freezes on the Formatting hard drive part.At Around 18%.Its all new hard drives(I am setting up software RAID),and i have tried another one just to make sure,so its not the hard drives.

I am thinking i should probably add a kernel option somewhere,or some BIOS Setting maybe.I have tried to use SATA as IDE and AHCI,but both did the same.

Any one had similiar issues?Possible fix?

Hard ware INFO.

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (Hyperthreading enabled)
1GB Ram
2x80GB SATA Hard Drives
Tyan S5151 Mainboard

Thanks for the help
