Why don't you install using the drive that passed the media check?

Because I have too many machines I want to install this one to take the drive and open all the boxes to plug it in and install off of it.


Have you changed blank media vendors?  Some drives may have trouble
reading different color media (older drives will have trouble reading
darker media due to the wavelength of the laser used in the drive).

No, same big spindle that never had problems before

Hmmmm...




Is there some other option besides the "ide=nodma" that

might help fixing


this problem and passing the check. I have done this so

often before and


never had a problem! Are these machines going crazy??? (OK, stupid
question...)

If it's an SMP machine, you might try "noapic". Also keep in mind that
this is a 2.6 kernel, which is radically different from a 2.4 kernel.
Also do a memcheck--you'd be surprised what you might find.


Well, the machines are not running any OS, so I can not run anything at the
moment. The same machines have installed the FC1 disks without problems...

Boot the first FC1 or FC2 CD and run the memcheck. And try the "noapic" option if they're SMP (some UP machines benefit from it, too). ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - "Mmmmmm!
