Re: [Core2Test3] Installation - No Fedora Core CD

This is similar to a problem that was seen when installing Red Hat 9 on a HP DL-380. The CD is initially read by Syslinux using the BIOS to do CD I/O. The kernel and initrd are loaded and the kernel takes over. A bug in the ide driver prevented the kernel from detecting the CD drive. Subsequently the kernel could not find the CD that it booted from.

There are a number of work arounds:

1. The CD can be NFS mounted on a different computer. A network install can then complete the install.

2. A a partition can be created on the disk with the contents of the first 2 or 3 CDs. This is cone with a rescue CD or with some other installed Linux system. The rest of the installation is then completed by selecting local hard disk for the installation medium.

3. Change the IDE connections for the CD-rom. Perhaps the kernel will be able to see the drive.

When booting from the first CD of the Core2 Test3
the installation asks for the language and keyboard
settings. When the 'Local CDROM' is choosen as
installation media, the following message is
displayed: "No Fedora Core CD was found which matches
your boot media. Please insert the Fedora Core CD and
press ok."

I've inserted all 4CDs, but without any succes. Could
anybody please help me with this issue ?
