Fedora 16 on HP Pavilon dv7-7180eb : no luck


Hello,

I'm trying Fedora 16 live on my new HP Pavillon dv7, but no luck.

The screen is stuck at :

udevd[186]: '/sbin/modprobe -bv pciv0000....00i00' [189] terminated by signal 9 (Killed)
dracut :
dracut : udevadm settle - timeout of 30 seconds reached, the event queue contains :
dracut : /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02:0 (1019)
dracut : Staring plymouth deamon

Yes Fedora 17 works better. Wifi does not work though...

I don't know if I really like the Gnome-interface of Fedora 17. Therefore I prefer Fedora 16.
