I'm trying to install fedora. I unpluged my 10 gig drive with XP on it and installed a spare 4 gig drive. I booted up with fedora disk #1 and the whole install program seams to run fine... except when it tries to make a boot floppy. Seams like no matter what I do it always reports "error writing to floppy." I've tried different disks and it dosn't help. I know the drive is good because it works under windows. Auuugghh! This is anoying. So I eventually just click 'cancle' and continue with the install. Then, when the system reboots it gives me this error:
Booting 'Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)'
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=/dev/hda2 rhgb
Error 15: File not found
Press any key to continue...
-Than it goes back to the GRUB boot loader. What file can't it find? Where should it be? I did the media check on all three CD's and they all checked out. Mabey it just dosn't like my hardware. I've got an P4 1.5 GHz with 512 DDR ram on a elitegroup MoBo.
I know this is a wierd probelm but any replies would be appreciated!
I am having this exact same problem. I try a few different floppies at the end of installation and none work. I have tried reinstalling a few times. I have changed the partitions. Nothing seems to work. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
