Hi Fellas.

The installer (anaconda) of "Fedora-15-x86_64-netinst" don't work on Dell XPS-15z.
(with install option default and basic video too).
When booting it stop at point: "Waiting for hardware to initialize" then halts.





There is the same problem in Fedora-15-x86_64-install-DVD.

I think the installer can't recognize the chip-set of Dell XPS-15z, but the problem may be other...
I don't know.

But I know that this way I can't use Fedora-15 64 bits platform.





Someone please... Help me...

Bye all.

Hello Paulo,

Have you verified you have a good iso image?* Have you tried a live CD?* Do you know what your video card is?

Hi mike.

Yes man, of course I know that.
I always do the checksum verify task (i understand the corruption downloads possibility).

The hardware configuration is:
Dell XPS-15z - Intel core i7-2620M 2.7-3.4 GHz CPU + 8 GB RAM.



2 graphic adapters: 1-)* Intel HD Graphic 3000 family.
******************************** 2-)* nVidia GeForce GT-525M - 3D Vision (with 2 GB memory).
Full HD 1080p led display monitor.
750 GB hard disk.
etc...




I have Fedora-15-i686 (32 bits platform) installed on that machine and it is working fine..

My problem is with Fedora-15-x86_64 (64 bits platform)


The problem is not the video driver or my video card man.
The installer for any reason stays "waiting for hardware to initialize" and halts.
ONLY in Fedora-15-x86_64.

This occurs with the "base video" option too (using "xdriver=VESA" kernel option).

I think may be unsupported chipset, because this machine is a new Dell product.
But I don't know if is this in fact...




Please Mike verify with some friends if the they know about this problem with Dell XPS-5z.

Thanks and happiness to you man.

Paulo (Paul).

Hi Paulo,

Unfortunately I don't know anyone with that hardware.* I found this discussion which you might find helpful http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19382036.aspx.* It looks like booting with acpi=off or acpi-noirq helped.* Sorry I couldn't be of more help.* Good luck,

Hello Mike !!!

YES ... BINGO... Great Mike. Thanks, thanks, thanks...

The solution to my problem is "acpi=off" kernel parameter.

I installed the Fedora-15-x86_64 on my Dell XPS-15z and it is working FINE.



Please Mike tell that to the people that use Dell XPS like me.

Great Mike... Thank you so much again man... Bye.
