Hi, I am having trouble installing Fedora 12 on my system.
- CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E6850
(3.0Ghz, Conroe Dual-Core, Socket T/775, 1333 FSB, 4M L2 Cache)
- mother board (MSI G31m3 v2).
With Fedora 12, 32-bit install DVD:
Sometimes I get something like this message right after anaconda loads. (It goes quick so I dont have a chance to write it all down.)
Processor Socket 0 APIC
CPU Socket 0 APIC
. . .
Processor Context Corrupt
See this link for a picture of the error screen:
Sometimes the Fedora 12 install procedes normally through the whole setup, and halfway through the install but the screen goes blank and the PC reboots.
I re-downloaded and made another Fedora 12 install DVD but had the same results.
I also tried loading Fedora-12 64-bit, same errors.
I wonder if this is an actual hardware error because:
1) Fedora-11 32-bit installs with no errors.
2) Ubuntu-9.10 32-bit installs with no errors.
The Fedora 12 Install Manual States:
"8.5.1. Overriding Automatic Hardware Detection
For some models of device automatic hardware configuration may fail, or cause instability. In these
cases, you may need to disable automatic configuration for that type of device, and take additional
steps to manually configure the device after the installation process is complete.
To override the automatic hardware detection, use one or more of the following options:
. . .
Disable all hardware detection
. . .
Disable machine check exception (MCE) CPU selfdiagnosis.
. . ."
Anyone know if this could be a solution and if so how would it be implemented?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
