Thumbs up Installing Fc6 64 Bit On Intel Core2 Duo + 965 Motherboard

Try FC6 64bit. Even on this you have to give some parameters. This is because Intel has made some changes with regards to PATA and SATA.

Here is how its done.
1) Go to your BIOS and change Advanced->Drive Configuration->AHCI(will be IDE initially)
2) Insert the Fedora(Debian) cd/dvd into your drive.
3) Start installation by typing 'linux a),b) & c)'
a) all-generic-ide
b) irqpoll
c) pci=nommconf
4) Once the installation is completed, c) will be added automatically to the kernel parameter, you just add a) to the kernel by modifying /boot/grub/grub.conf. DON'T ADD b)

I've successfully tried and tested this using FC6 on my motherboard. FYI my specs in my sig.
Hope this helps

It is good to have all this in one place.
Add HOWTO to the title, and tick the "show sig" box, will help. Though, for your specs in a howto it is usually better to paste the lspci results: people will search against the specific hardware that gives them trouble see?


duo, intel
