Hi. I have a set of Linux+server installation CD's that were given to me by a programmer and over the last few years, I have installed Linux onto several computers (laptops, Desktops, IBM, Acer etc) perfectly every time without a hitch.
I bought a brand new HP G53329es
64-bit Desktop last week to use as my new server and I just can't get past first base, with no idea at all what could be wrong
After inserting the correct 64-bit boot & Install disk, I get the Fedora Core boot screen prompting me with boot:
As I have always done I type in linux ks=cdrom:/KP1-server.ks and press enter. The message comes up
& THEN THE SCREEN REBOOTS. That's it.
I have no idea about linux but I tried several things. I used the same installation disks on another computer in exactly the same way and it worked fine with that exact command, so no problem with the disk or the command.
I deleted all of HP's extra recovery partitions, combined them all into 1 c: partition and fully formatted it, reading
that might be the problem. Still exactly the same thing.
I tried the 32-bit installation disks as the machine handles both 32 & 64 bit, but exactly the same zero response.
I'm a linux newbie with not much more ability than following step-by-step directions. Any ideas at all what could be the problem?
Thanks so much for you help in advance
