I also have the P4P800 and get the same behavior. Its gets to "loading initrd.img..." and reboots.

There was a similar problem with test 3, where the install would just freeze early on.

looks like this is a known issue for the P4P800 series mobo, with no solution.

its mentioned in the release notes:

thanks for this.

i'll keep an eye on this bugzilla thread.
let's hope a solution will be found.

This problem does not just occur on P4 800 machines. I just tried an FC2 install on a VIA C3 800 machine and got the same symptoms.

As I don't have access to Bugzilla please could someone update the forum if there is news on this issue ?
