FC3 - "Disabling IRQ # 10" error when installing
Here are my system specs:
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.4ghz
Motherboard: Intel D845PEBT2
Chipset: Intel i845PE
Memory: 1GB DDR3200
Video Card: NVidia Geforce FX 5900XT
Sound: Onboard 82801DB/DBM Audio Controller
Hard Drives: 120GB SATA Maxtor (1 partition with Win XP), 75GB SATA Seagate (un-partitioned, planning to put FC3 on here)
SATA Controller: Silicon Image SiI 3112 SATALink Controller
IDE drives: Lite-On DVD Player (Secondary Master), Plextor PX-708A (Secondary Slave)
I have the DVD image of FC3. I boot to the DVD and press enter to start the installation. It pops up a box with the header "Loading SCSI driver" and the text "Loading sata_sil". After a couple seconds "Disabling IRQ # 10" shows up.
The system never moves past that point.
I know this question has been asked a few times before, but most of the solutions have involved disabling SATA or rebuilding a new kernel. I can't disable SATA since those are the only HD's I have and I would have to rebuild a new kernel inside Linux (right?).
I did see a few posts where someone had this problem and were able to change some BIOS settings to resolve it. Since I have an Intel board the BIOS options are.....disappointing. I have SATA RAID disabled and Boot to SATA enabled. My two IDE drives are not on the primary IDE chain, but the secondary.
Anyway, does anyone have any ideas or will I just have to use a different distro?
