View Full Version : "the fedora core cd was not found" Fedora 3.90 DVD
7th April 2005, 12:56 AM
I just download the 3.90 (FC4 test1) ISO DVD and tried to install it on a 2.8 HT with a SATA_via hard disk and a IDE DVD/RW...
The DVD boots ok, asks me for language, keyboard setup and then spits out the FC DVD with an error:
"the fedora core cd was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please inster the FC cd and press OK to retry"...
No luck after that...
There are NO SCSI drives or anything on the PC...
Ps. I read somewhere I should try loading it with noacpi... I tried
to load the setup but still no luck!

when it asks for a cd it usually means that the cd/DVD was burned incorrectly. Plus on a side note, if you plan on testing the software, reporting bugs, and attempting to fix said problems; then do install FC4. if you do not want these type of situations please install FC3 or wait til june when FC4 will be released.

I'm burning a new copy of the CD right now as I saw that it said Unable to identify CD-ROM format...
I'll tell you in a sec! :)
I wanna install FC4 so I can learn something more from getting pissed off with stuff like that! :P
I've read about 40 threads about linux booting parameters just to find out that the problem might be that I didn't burn it correctly! :P

Try disabling DMA at the boot prompt, worked for me

LOL, I had a similar problem......
Ended up with 3 DVD's, so I just booted from one of them, and when is said it couldn't find a package, i just swapped DVD's.....It was kind of inconvenient, but it worked, and everything installed okay......
(wonder if it was cheap media or something?, though all 3 disks passed the MD5SUM when I checked them later?)

My situation is the same as the OP. Same error messages and everything. Tried all of the advice in this thread, no luck. Any other suggestions?
Fedorajim stated 'when it asks for a cd it usually means that the cd/DVD was burned incorrectly.' Yet by the time it spits out the FC DVD it has already booted, started X, and progressed a good ways into the installation.
Any help on how to get the DVD install working would be appreciated.

When you boot into the installation do you have it test the packages on the cd to make sure everything is ok? If not make sure you do that because it could've been a bad burn and somthing could've happend to some of the packages. If you have tested the dvd, then the install is probably hanging on something involving your hardware. Does it always get to the same percentage when installing? If so, what package does your install hang on?
