I am trying to install Fedora Core 3 on my Dell XPS B866r - I have tried both the DVD and CD-Rom media, and I get the same error with both. Furthermore, I have used the media I have to successfully install on other machines, so I know that is not the source of the problem.
When I try to boot off of the media, isolinux starts loading, but then crashes and fails saying it could not load the hard drive device, and that the BIOS is extremely damaged. I know this is not the case, because the machine is running just fine with XP in the other partition.
The only possible cause I can think of is that the master boot hard drive is not on the motherboard controller: it is on a Promise Ultra100 ATA controller.
Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this issue? I would really like to get Fedora up and running on this machine.
