In respect of parameters passed to the kernel at install time, some of the hardware on this Ultra10 causes anaconda to fail and abandon the remainder of the installation. Do you know what to pass to the kernel to overcome dodgy IDE or other hardware in order for anaconda to complete the installation?
Sure -- here is how you make your Fedora installation finish successfully:
Install Fedora 11.
Fedora 9 is out of date
. This means that every part of Fedora 9 is out of date, including its hardware drivers. Your Fedora 9 installation is failing because of a conflict between your hardware and Fedora 9's hardware drivers.
I can't make this any simpler. Install Fedora 11.
