Maybe your DVD is bad? Ask Fedora to check it next time you start the install.

And also, I have also tried that, and it found absolutely nothing wrong with the DVD when it checked the disk.

Can it be because HP Pavilion a630n desktop computers (especially with the Intel P4 2.8GHz HT with SATA motherboard support) doesn't support / wasn't designed for Linux O.S.?

And if yes, then, would the latest computer specs listed below work with (for example Fedora Core 10 or the next version of Fedora Core that will come out):

Processor: "Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail "

Motherboard: (Latest/Newest/Brand New - Intel Dual-Core compatible motherboard).

Memory: DDR2 [2x] 1gb RAM

Hard Drive: 320gb - 750gb SATA/... Hard Drive

Power Supply: 300-550 watts power supply.

Etc...
Would it work, or would I need to use some other kind of computer, such as Intel Pentium 4, LGA 775 3.0GHz w/1.5gb ram, etc... ?


Thank You Very Much.

I personally think it has nothing to do with the type of computer or processor for that matter. I have installed Fedora 10 on my laptop Packard Bell (EasyNote) MH 35. At first I could not get the installation process started as after a while it just hang. I found that I had to give the following parameters to start it off. As soon as the installation screen appeared I pressed the "tab" button and gave the following parameters to the kernel: Linux noapic acpi=off. But then the next problem popped up as my monitor was not recognised by the installation program and it continued in text mode. To cut a long story short I had to start all over again with the following parameters: Linux noapic acpi=off skipddc xdriver=vesa. Now everything went smoothly and after finishing I just installed system-config display and initialised my screen.
Now I know very well that this does not cover your problem, but you too may have to give extra parameters before starting the process.

well i don't know what to tell you but that "Transferring Image to Hard Disk error" Dose sound like a bad burn to dvd . I have found that dvd *.iso's burned at MAX speed do tend to have errors .
try reburing it at x2 or x4 ( dvd+/-r ) and x1 or x2 for dvd+/-rw .

Hi
You just try md5sum of your iso image you have downloaded.

#md5sum filename.iso

it will display a chksum...

compare your chksum with fedora website.

i think it will help you.
