Re: Fedora 11 installation on Thinkpad X31- Unstable tsc

Thanks for your reply. Sorry don't understand vanilla kernel. X31 deso not have cd rom and does not support booting from usb flash drive, only usb diskette and usb cd rom, both I don't have. I have XP already installed. I copied the vmlinuz0 and initrd from F11 LiveCD iso to C:/boot, the grldr and menu.lst from Grub for Dos 0.4.4 to C:/boot and C:/boot/grub correspondingly. boot.ini and menu.lst were revised a little bit as usual and then I rebooted. Got stuck at unstable tsc as described. If the liveCD does not support my laptop will the full version (will buy external cd rom if necessary though not preferrably. BTW could not find full version of F11) or another distro like ubuntu, suse etc. work?

Fresh install, or a fresh install with a vanilla kernel?
make sure ext4 is compiled in the kernel
(just sat for a few yours wondering why my system wasn't
booting!! ended up being just as simple as that)

If  you have not done anything to the internals then it could be the arch
of the cd, or maybe the livecd itself has no support for your machine
i.g. I'm noticing my imac with the 130 graphics card results in a black screen
(cant even install fedora on that machne!!)

I'm wondering if your system has issues
like what most mac's do, i.g. booting a system
through usb/ieee1394 is a bit tricky.

In your case you would have to install the .iso
to the usb stick(and make it bootable) before doing any
kind of install. Doing a quick google resulted in nothing
for me, but there is a tutorial out there that deals with setting up the
certain files to the usb, so that  the bios can see the drive as a bootable
system, so you'll be able to boot.
