Fc4 Install Freezes On "running /sbin/loader"
This is my first time trying to install FC4. Each time it freezes on "running /sbin/loader". I tried typing in "linux nofb", but same result. Tried "linux apm=off acpi=off pci=noacpi" but still same result. I finally typed in "linux ide=nodma nousb nofb" and that at least got me to the GUI Install where it says "What type of media contains the packages to be installed?" I select Local CDROM since that's where I have my FC4 #1 CD. After a couple mins, it spits out the CD and says "The Fedmore Core CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives."
Can someone help me with this? I'm trying to install on a Latitude notebook. PII 266 128MB RAM.
I had the same problem/error trying to install multiple versions of Redhat and Fedora Core on a HP DL140. It turns out that the firmware on the cd-rom was causing the problem. I attached a USB cd-rom, changed the boot order in the Bios, and wala....problem solved with no more hang ups. It has to do with an incompatibility with the firmware on the cd-rom drive.
