Fedora 8 installation


I am trying to install Fedora 8 on my laptop with config
Core2Duo T5500
Intel 945 Board
Intel 945GM Chipset Graphics

But it says it wont respond after i skip the disk check. It just goes still or some times some junk vales gets displayed on the screen.
When i tried memory test its displays my board to be of 965 chipset. Is this because fedora 8 is not having 945 chipset driver.

I tried it on my desktop which is having 975 chipset board and its working fine..

Any help is appreciable..
Thanks in advance

I had a similar problem with a very similar laptop but with Ubuntu. I fixed it by installing in safe graphics mode. It was having some problem with my graphics card and while it was working correctly I couldn't see that. I can't remember what the options are on the Fedora 8 are but there is probably a parameter you can pass at the beginning.

Have you performed a media check on the install media ?

I know that this might sounds obvious, but I need to ask

In the past I've had a couple of problems with installing Fedora (earlier versions), which turned out to be faulty media.
