I have recently acquired a 2nd hand pc that i want to use to learn linux. I got a fedora core 5 DVD and am trying to install it without luck. It has however installed fine on 2 other machines.
When I try to install it boots to the load screen and when i push enter it gets to ACPI: setting ELCR to 0200 (from 0e20) then hangs. I have tried various prompts for the linux command and nothing works (including ACPI off which still hangs but it hangs on Checking 'hlt' instruction.....OK) Ive updated to the most recent BIOS available for the board.
My specs are as follows:
DFI AD77 Motherboard
DVD Writer Liteon
GeForce 5600XT (have tried other cards too)
Soundblaster Live 5.1 Sound Card (also tried without the card)
Any help would be much appreciated
