    New mobo & vid card- now I cannot install Fedora Core 3


    Well, I've just upgraded my comp: purchased a new mobo (Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe) and a new vid card (Gigabyte GeForce 7800 GTX ).

    Problem is, when I try to install Fedora Core 3 from the setup disk, the setup hangs up on:-

    running/sbin/loader

    I've got around 40 GB of unallocated space on my HDD (same as I had before).

    Could it possibly (if unlikely) be that my hardware is unsupported my the distro?...


    Thanks.

    Try passing the 'noacpi' option to the kernel at boot, just by typing it at the command line.

    Sorry it took so long to get back...

    Typing 'noacpi' didn't work, anyhow (out of interest what does acpi stand for?).

    Any other suggestions?
