I'm having trouble getting Fedora 10 to work on a nice new HP 2140 business class netbook. This is yet another Intel ATOM / Intel 945GSE chipset based Netbook with 1G of RAM, 160G HD, gig-e, wireless, 10" screen, etc. Really nice keyboard
I used F10 Live image on a USB stick to install Fedora. While doing so I noticed some flaky behaviour booting but thought it might be USB related.
I got F10 up and running and it looks really sweet. But after a major set of F10 upgrades, now I can only get this far:
1) Hardware powers up and initializes
2) BIOS boots and shows logo then executes GRUB
3) GRUB is fully functional from what I can see. I can boot XP, navigate through options, make changes, etc.
4) When I try to boot Fedora I either get:
a> 80x25 text screen black with white cursor in top right and nothing more
b> reboot back to BIOS startup
c> kernel crash that provides too much information and I can only see the last bits of a kernel trace
d> possibly a kernel report of BUG in some way or another, but it comes and goes so fast I can't tell what it is reporting.
So, can anyone suggest anything I can try to start working on resolving this? I'll take any suggestions in order to learn more.. kernel options, grub commands, etc. I'm patient with this and willing to try many options in order to ultimately get it working.
