Anyway my previous message was about the ASUS incompatibility. It seems FC2 is completely useless on and ASUS (probably new) Mboard. Unfortunately for me, I have just purchased an ASUS board. Does anyone find it odd that a dist. would be completely incompatible with a whole of manufacturer's line of Mboards, or is it just me? This is a known issue and has been for awhile, so it dismays me as to why a final version of ANY operating system would basically state "ASUS Mboards won't work with this OS."


Your post is totally unhelpful.

How about every p4p800 model>


Here is the relative FC2 release note:

"Installation-Related Issues

Attempts to install Fedora Core 2 on ASUS® motherboards in the P4P800 series may not proceed past the "Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel." message, making installation impossible. No workaround is available at this time. "

Here is the bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121819

Here is Redhat's response to this problem:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2004-May/msg00387.html

You don't even mention what model of motherboard, BIOS version, or even processor. Without this information, it is kind of like saying, "Help! My car stopped working! I wont tell you what car I have except that it is Toyota. I wont tell you how it failed either. I demand that you help me, and I blame you for all this trouble!"


It is irrelevant. This issue has been known since FC2 test 2, and I would assume if anyone had this motherboard or any ASUS MB would respond with their personal work-around. My configuration is basically the same as the many of the others.

This post was to elicit responses from people have the problem and are working on it such as myself.
