I tried to install FC4 64 bit on my system, but it hang on me...
it hang when running /sbin/loader
so i tried with "linux noprobe" parameter, it works but as soon as i tried to boot it for the very first time it hang again after the audio driver init...i'm so confused, i'm a newbie at this...so can anybody help me ??
BTW : my system is a AMD64 3000+ with a DFI LP UT 250 GB and 512 mb RAM
PS : sorry i can't relate the details very clearly, i'm really new to linux...
Someone I know figured it out: at the boot prompt, type whatever you want. then, when it tries to boot and then, when you get the error message, type the parameters you want to use or just hit enter, and I am told the installation will proceed. Supposedly this is an issued with fedora, opterons and sata drives. I haven't done this myself, except maybe accidentally.
I had the same issue. The install would hang on /sbin/loader...... I had a USB hub (Apple Cinema Display) plugged in, I unplugged it and pluged my mouse into the MB and like magic it works now. Just my experience.
