Installation Problem!


Hi,

Im trying to install Fendora Core 2, but for some un-known reason it just stops at the 'running/sbin/loader' part and does nothing, this is just at the start just after I have selected the graphical installation.....


Any one have any ideas??


Thanks



Paz

well from your description I would have to guess you are trying to install FC2 on a toaster. To try to help with this you will have to give a little more information. How many slices does it accept. What voltage? What kind of outlet, american or european? Seriously though, you really need to let us know what you are installing on. processor, video card, is it an ide drive or scsi how big a drive. Just common sense stuff that may cause your problem.

Fedora safe install

Here is what you do....

when you get to the graphical install where it asks for the install method do this:

type as it says plus these commands --- linux ide=nodma apm=off acpi=off

that should do it for you

hope it works

do you have your bios set to protect against viruses? If you have this set it can not write to the mbr.
