Fedora install stops at hdc a DVD rom ?
I tried to read everything I could here ,but nothing seems to relate to my problem.I am a Linux noob but a Windows Power usr , Forgive my tec mistakes here!
I am trying to Dual boot Fedora 4 with W2K SP4 ;
PentIV,3.06 socket 478
P4P800X 1028 Mb Crucial Dual channel
160Gb Mastr,40 Gb Slave ,Maxtors 40 for Fedora alone
Plextor PX708a Dvd Rw and LG DVD player -on secondary Ide
Iiyama LCD 18"
Hope thats enuff, anyway the Fedora Dvd boots and the commandpages scrool thru HDD checks and stop at the follow statements;
Hdc Not ready for Commands
Ide opcode unknown
hdc Aborted commands error 0x44
Request sense Failure error 0x59
The light on the drive goes out and the load stops,screen blanks
I have tried numerous commands at the first install screen Mediacheck,noprobe noapic,acpi = off,ide nodma,pci=off,skipddc,nofb
Fedora3 stops install on the first screen after loading Scsi card,ist item
Does anyone want to tackle this ,I would like to try Fedora.
