Re: FCT3 - Hangs when installing from CD

I had this same problem, on an Asus P4C800 and Fedora
Core 1, (the CD wouldn't boot).

I had been using FC1 with no problems till I upgraded
the bios to version 1014. The only way I could find to
solve it was to patch the bios back to version 1011.
At the time I did that, version 1014 was the latest
one, so I can't tell whether versions 1015 or 1016
will work. Also, whether this is a bios fault or a
kernel one... I have no clue.

Hope this solves it for you ;)
