We need LOTS more info, Peter. *Computer make/model (or processor type
and motherboard make/model), video card, type of hard drive (SATA, SCSI,
IDE), memory size, that sort of thing. *Also make sure the BIOS on the
machine is the current release (check with the computer or motherboard
Thanks for the reply
Rick. Here's what I can tell you about my system:
Dell DM051 x86
x86 Family 15* Model 4
Stepping 7 Intel 2793 MHz
Intel 82845G chipset
RAM 2 GB
BIOS version Dell Inc
A05, 3 /31/2006 (Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS version* 1.10 A05)
The most common problems have to do with interrupt routing, DMA
channels, APMI issues and that sort of thing. *There's lots of work-
arounds and we need to know what may be appropriate for you. *If you
could tell us what's displayed when you hit "ALT-F3" and "ALT-F4" when
it's stalled, that may help as well.
Nothing's displayed at
all. I don't have a problem with either the F7 or FC6 boot DVDs!
Does this describe your problem?
