I tried to initialize an HTTP installation from mirrors.us.kernel.org via Grub. Cmdline option inst.resolution=1024x768 was ignored (as far as it got, far short of GUI startup), as were vga=791, video=1024x768 and net.ifnames=0. Init progressed only as far as "target Initrd File Systems", about 40 seconds. Only keyboard response was to ESC toggling between bootup message and a bar at bottom of screen that ended "Fedora 21", and CAD to reboot, since a wait of more than 10 minutes produced no more activity.

Should it have proceeded?

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
