I'm running an AMD Phenom 9500 2.2GHz Quad core with 4GB RAM.
I've been running the 64 bit version of CentOS on this hardware for a while but I wanted to install Fedora instead and get all the bells and whistles.
I've successfully installed the i686 version (I got the disc on a mag) but I can't get the machine to boot an x86_64 version of the disc (I've tried and tested several discs).
I have everything in the BIOS still set up as it was when I was running CentOS x86_64 but for some reason I just can't get the Fedora DVD to boot.
Does anyone know if there's something I can try to remedy this. What I'd like is to run a KDE 64 bit version of Fedora on this hardware with VM support.
I tried installing the i686 version with the idea that I could use yum to upgrade it to a 64 bit system but I've read online that it may not be a good idea so it looks like a bootable dvd is my best approach.
