Problems installing Fedora (32 and 64 bit) and Gentoo
This has probably been posted but I cannot find it, so forgive me if I am repeating someone else.
I have tried to install Fedora Core 1 to my new PC, tried both 32 and 64 bit versions, also tried an old SuSE and Redhat 9. Got really desparate and tried Gentoo. I have the same problem with them all.
I will use Fedora to illustrate the problem, but remember it happens with them all.
When I try to boot I should be shown a nice screen telling me to press enter to begin, or type linux text for a text installation. What I get is a blank screen. I even tried typing linux text to see if that would work, but nothing.
2x Opteron 1.6Ghz
1 gig ECC DDR Ram
160 Gig SATA Hard drive
ATI 9800 AIW
17" LCV (connected via DVI)
Does anyone have the same problems? Anyone got a suggestion? I have used all the CDs before (except 64bit Fedora) and they all work. Some guys at work suggested taking out the graphics card and using an old one, then re-fitting the 9800... I really do not want to do that.
So, anyone got an idea?
