Re: [FC2] Can't install on Dell Optiplex

Model is GX260, BIOS is A06.  Video adapters include an Intel 82845 and a
Radeon 7000.  NIC is an Intel Pro/1000MT.  Audio is SoundMAX integrated.
It also has a USB cordless mouse.

The install disk crashes immediately on boot and leaves the following
information on the screen (hopefully with no trascription error). The
only way to reboost is to hit reset or power-cycle. I tried acpi=no
as a kernel option, to no avail.

The options for acpi are either on or off. I'm not sure if no, yes, 0 or 1 will work.

I'm not experienced with diagnosing memory address and initializing calls. It looks to me that this is related to the agp video card. Have you tried to either remove one of the video cards or disabling one from BIOS? If both are being attempted to be installed, maybe one is trying to use the same hardware parameters as the other video card.

This is just a wild guess.


Thanks for any assistance.

Your true value depends entirely on what you are compared with.
