Couldn't install FC2


I tried to install FC2, but after I booted from FC2 disc 1, it just hanged there when it was loading /sbin/loader. I tried with FC4 and it hanged at /sbin/loader also. Any idea?

One possibility is if you have overclocked the cpu. If that's the case, throttle down and try again.

Did you run TEST MEDIA before the actual install?

A possible answer is both systems didn't like your USB keyboard or mouse. Happened to me before. OK after changed to a PS2 keyboard.
