Asus eee PC 901, after successful network install, failed to boot as above. Adding "selinux=0" boot param rsulted in a successful boot. I did the usual initial stuff, including a full update, and then attempted to reboot (with selinux disabled), but without success.

A successful reinstall via network with selinux disabled failed to reboot, as before.

I had a similar problem on my HP Pavilion ZE5547WM. The live cd (KDE) would boot and before loading the desktop, it had many popups saying that there was a kernel panic. I was able to exit all of them and the desktop finished loading. Then it had a problem with loading the widgets. I have not tested anything else after that; I rebooted back into my HD afterward.

Kernel panic with fedora 11 alpha live CD on Asus N50VC. Installed Ubuntu Juanty (devel) from the live CD and is working well. This pre release is really impressive.
