    Install Fedora Core 4 on Asus Z71V notebook


    I'm having trouble installing Fedora Core 4 on an Asus Z71V notebook. It is configured with an Intel 760 CPU with 2 GB Ram and 60GB HD (no wlan). I tried installing FC4 using both the Graphical and Text method. Either method causes a kernal panic.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    It should work nicely with Fedora Core 5. Have you tried it?

    Did you take a look at other linux install on that machine?

    As a matter of fact, I did have FC5 installed prior (without any install problems and fully patched). I have software that turns out to be incompatible with FC5. The FC4 PC runs it fine. This is why I need FC4.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks.

    Well... myself I have an Asus Z63A, which is not that different from the Z71V, and it runs Debian Etch so nicely that I just never bothered trying Fedora Core 4.

    About the kernel panic? What causes it? What is the message just below it?

    Do you have the latest BIOS version installed? (version 0210)
