I downloaded F13 probably the day it was released ... I was so excited. Recently, I've been seriously challenged with installing the x86_64 version on one of my machines. It runs on Core 2 Duo processor @ 2.4Ghz, 320Hdd, Gigabyte X38-DQ6 motherboard, and 2Gb ram.
The same ISO image installed smoothly on my dell precision M6300 laptop, and another box (Gigabyte 8I945P Mobo, Pentium D, 2GbRAM). I have tried different partitioning schemes to avert the arising error message ... the installer usually fails when it encounters strange partitions (and Palimpsest fails more often these with F13, so I use gparted).
I still can't get the x86_64 to install. Strangely the i686 version installs okay on the same machine. What is going on?
There was an error installing the live image to your hard drive. This could be due to bad media. Please verify your installation media. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will require re-installation.
