FC4 kernel panic on install

I know this topic has been talked about before but I have treid the other solutions
acpi=off noprobe and noapic, turning off acpi in the BIOS
linux mediacheck pci=nosort text

Can't seem to get it to work

The error is
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
do exit
do invalid
and stops at

Here is the harwdware specs
Asus P5GD1
2 gig of kingston dual channel ram
Asus AX 550 video card
2 10k sata hard drives on raid 0

I tried the media on another pc and it installed fine.

Any ideas?
