View Full Version : Unable to install Fedora 9
4th May 2008, 02:40 PM
Greetings. I was going to install the Fedora 9 x86_64 preview release on a new laptop, model Asus X70Sr, but ran into an error right away. I've been looking around some but haven't found any solution.
Loading isolinux: Disk error 10, AX = 42A8, drive EF
Boot failed: press a key to retry
It occurs when I select either the normal installer or the text-based installer in grub when booting from the DVD. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Did you confirm that the burn was good with the program you used to burn it?
It's also important to confirm the file was downloaded ok with
or whatever your filename was and compare the result to the sha1sum string in the mirror
where you got it. Usually there's a file in the directory with the iso called SHA1SUM
I suspect the burn failed. If you have a different PC available see if it
can boot in that, also, if it does use the "Boot and Verify" option to verify it

Hi not the same problem as what i had, (freezing) but the only way i could install on my machine was with a live cd , the dvd just would not install, if its any help to you.

I tried the DVD in another computer and it's fine. I didn't know that it was possible to install from a live cd, guess I'll try that.
