Re: fedora-11-x64_86 after install reboot to Error 15

I installed Fedora-11-x64_86-DVD.iso tested disk OK installed on 500 gig drive partitioned /dev/sda1 and the last 9999 whatever as swap. on reboot from bios system goes to blank screen with Error 15 in upper right corner. even before grub. I had to explicitly partition sda to sda1 ext3 and a swap. If I do not then grub fails with not being able to mount the root partition. it does not like 0x8e.

I can run rescue from above DVD.  it starts kernel OK
But who knows what can be fixed??????

You need a /boot in a partition which is filesystem ext[23]. On the other hand, the installer seems to prevent you from doing this if you don't have a separate boot partition.

An LVM PV might be an issue as well, although I would expect the installer to catch that as well. I'm not sure what you mean by "partition sda to sda1 ext3" since ext3 is not a partition type but a f/s type. You want your files in ext4, I would think, for performance. The default f/s format doesn't seem to set up zones, there are a *lot* of options to ext4, I did mine by hand on one system and feel as if it's worth it, but mainly because I run VM disk images there and any speed boost seems to help.

separate issue on cpuspeed in boot sequence crashes install if fc-8
I have installed Fedora-8-x64_86-DVD and had to comment out a modprobe line
I expect if I ever get past Error 15 I will also have to rename /etc/init.d/cpuspeed

My third linux install was a redhat ( I think less than 1) that I bought in Westport Ct in Bob Young's former CEO of Redhat. kitchen.
This may be my 130th install of a linux.
