I'm new to Linux and I'm having trouble installing Fedora 15. I really like Fedora 15, and running it would help me familiarize myself with Linux and command line.
I can boot Fedora 15 live x64 from on a flash drive with YUMI and it runs well. When I try to install, the installation hangs when it gets to searching for 'Basic Storage Devices'. No matter how long I leave it or how many times I try it will not install.
I Have Also Tried:
- Booting from full dvd iso. Install crashes at the same place.
- USB boot with Unetbootin and liveusb-creator. Crashes without booting (I forget the error) Truthfully Unetbootin booted when I first tried but it may have stopped after I formatted with YUMI once.
- Frugal hard disk install with Unetbootin. Crashes.
- USB Boot of GParted. Crashes when searching for hard disks.
- Adding nomodeset to install, but it already seemed to be there. I could have done it wrong.
My best guess is that my hard drive is formatted or partitioned irregularly which is preventing the machine from recognizing it. The stock Windows 7 x64 runs perfectly fine, although there is weird partitioning. There is a hidden boot partition smack in the middle of the drive which separates it into C: and D: storage areas.
My laptop is the Asus 1215B-MU17
No CD or Floppy Drive
Any help you give me would be GREATLY appreciated. I have spent many hours on this. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Thank you in advance
