My PC is home built, but the components are as follows:
nVidia 780i motherboard
nVidia 8800 GTS
4GB OCz RAM
some Sony DVD burner
I'll try the console based install now.
For the record, the boot works and the OS seems fine until I try the installer.
come to think of it, I'm running a significant overclock on my processor, I should probably take my processor back to stock as well. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
Edit: Forgot to mention, I'm running RAID 0.
Also I think this looks interesting, hopefully it will lend a clue. Here is the output to the console:
[fedora@localhost ~]$ /usr/bin/liveinst

22:48:38 Starting graphical installation...
/dev/sdb: "nvidia" and "jmicron" formats discovered (using jmicron)!
/dev/sda: "nvidia" and "jmicron" formats discovered (using jmicron)!
I never got this before, but now that I'm running from the command line, I get a message saying that the device mapper/jmicron_GRAID was unreadable and new partitions must be initialized.
This, of course, isn't going to work very well with my goal of keeping windows for the time being.
