| Try entering a little gibberish (like jdfjfhf) from the prompt and

I'll try this. quite surprising anyway...

I tried "rescue" option, but, I'll try some more. With rescue, the
result was the same.

Here is the description on the ASUS site for the motherboard.

- - Intel 955X chipset
- - Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 CPU
- - Dual-Core CPU
- - Native DDR2 800 Support
- - Universal PCI-E Slot
- - PEG Link
- - AI NOS™

And the processor:

Intel® Pentium® D processor 830:

Architecture:   90 nm, LGA775
Cache:          2x1MB L2
Clock Speed:    3 GHz
Front Side Bus: 800 MHz
Dual-core:      yes
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology: yes
Intel® EM64TΦ: yes
Execute Disable Bit°: yes

But I don't understand much on hardware problems. I maybe understand
that this architecture is a 64 bits one (am I right?) and I tried to
install FC4_i386.... Should I install FC4-x86_64 ?

Hélas! no message at all! only reboot!

| it is difficult for the community to assist.

Hope this time....

Thank you.
