I am trying to install fedora core 13 (live) on a dell vostro 3500 laptop with the intell i5 processor. The boot process starts and then simply gets stuck after a while. Initially i thought that there might be some problem with either the image or the disk, and have ended up trying 4 different images (32 bit, 64 bit, kde version, gnome version) all with the same result. From Cd's as well as USB drives so i am pretty sure its not the image, but rather some problem with the laptop.
I tried starting the boot cd with 'quite' option removed, and apparently the boot process crashes somewhere around
udevd-work: ' /sbin/modprobe -b pci:v0000d123.......' unexpected exit with status 0x0009
setting hostname localhost.localdomain [ok]
before this i have this..
usb_id unable to access '/devices/pci0000.00/0000:00:1a............../input/input10/event10'
Can someone verify if they have successfully installed/booted fedora or any other version of linux on this laptop?
Or what can i possibly do here? I cannot even seem to get the laptop to boot from a live cd.
Thank you for your suggestions/help
