How to install Fedora 8 on Asus M2N-MX SE
I have one small problem of installation of Linux (Fedora 8)
I have following H/w configuration:--
2.5 GHz AMD Athlon dual core 64-bit processor
Asus ...M2N-MX AM2 socket motherboard
300 GB HDD
Previously when I had Intel Motherboard & P4 processor, the installation was Succesful.
But After upgradation.....I unable to install any Linux version...
I have Fedora8 installable DVD.
Is it because of shift from Intel To Asus Board ??
When I booted with Ubuntu CD..........
The problem it shows is--
MP-BIOS bug:- 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC+ timer doesn't work!
Boot with apic= debug and send a report then try booting with "noapic" option
I have tried with 32-bit as well as 64-bit edition of Ubuntu but both giving errors.
Live CD of Knoppix 3.2 is working fine
I read ur suggestions previosly posted of pressing F6..F4.. use of "noapic" option etc ......it wont work.
can u solv this prob ?
Is it necessary to update BIOS??
Do I need to make Any changes to My System?
Pls let me know as early as poossible........
