FC-5-DVD install will not finish
I think it may have something to do with an incorrect setting I trying to use RAID0 on two SATA HDs.
Here is the hardware:
MOBO: Asus A8N-VM CSM
HDs: Western Dig. 250 Gig. (Different models)
CPU: Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
RAM: Crucial 4 sticks of 512
So the install will get to the part where it actually is installing and tells you how much time is left only mine will either say something like 170 or 200+ minutes, or will start at 65, get to 35, and sit there for hours until I reset it. These numbers are not consistent on every install, but the basic behavior is the same.
I have tried various partition settings and even the default ones hang. I see the same results with 64 and 32 bit versions. I am using the DVD iso's for each.
I was under the impression that there were no jumper settings that needed to be set on a SATA drive, but please correct me if I am wrong.
The only time I actually got a successful install was by only selecting one of the Hard Drives for the install with the 64 bit version. This install did not work that well, as I could not see the mouse pointer and even the Xterm was crashing.
I have been using linux since about Core 1 or 2, so I am not exactly a newbie, but I am not a Guru either.
My next step will be to try a core 4 install and upgrade. I have thought about not doing a graphical install, but I don't see how that would address the issue I am having.
I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
