I am trying to install Fedora. New to Fedora 15 earlier using fedora 11 i686 PAE.
I have good laptop Dell latitude D410 that is about 6 yrs old. Have 85GB HDD,external DVD drives. 512 MB memory and Intel Centrino 2.0GHZ processor. The machine is currently running fedora linux 11.
I want to load Fedora 15. I have downloaded Fedora 15 DVD ISO image and trying to install it.
The installation goes up to certain point and hangs at the same point when it is "trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs" - this is the message I get as well. It hangs so tight that I have to give reset the machine using the reset button.
I have read other posting on this topic - although in earlier case, it was reported that s/he was trying to go from Fed 14 to Fed 15. And that the user was able to get the prompt after hitting Ctrl+C 30+ times.
In this case, it is a new install - straight boot from DVD and getting up to this point and HANG!!
However, I still tried to use the solution suggested in other post - ran memory test successfully.
Any help will be appreciated.
if u get any solution please email me to firstname.lastname@example.org
