My first attempt to install fedora onto vmware failed with a message:
"Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!"
After reading through various threads around the web I tried the install with "linux boot=idle" and everything worked well. However I haven't yet been able to boot after what seemed like a successful install.
While attempting to boot I see..
"Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 4 of device 0000:00:07.1
invalid operand: 0000 [#1]
Which leads to the same Kernel Panic error that I was receiving when I first attempted to install. It hangs there and never boots..
Any suggestions? I've tried to read as much online about this as I could find.
