Please test your media if you have not already.

Mediacheck results in a PASS. And additional attempts to achieve a "no probe" install, with suggested command-line settings for memory and resolution, hang at "OK, booting the kernel". I'm using Partition Magic 7 to divide a 40-gig IBM hard disk into four chunks: Win2k NTFS, Win2k FAT32, Linux and Linux swap.
Comment 4 David Maude 2003-06-10 09:10:40 UTC
Acting on advice from Red Hat support, I removed the Linux partitions and left 15G of free space on the disc unallocated. This runs counter to PowerQuest's advice about using Partition Magic to achieve a multi-boot scenario - and still doesn't work

This particular type of failure occurs mostly when there was corruption loading a python module from the install source (CD in this case). I would recommend getting replacement media and/or swapping the CD drive for a different drive to determine which is causing the issue.

Thank you. I rebooted using DOS, chose my DVD - as opposed to ATAPI CD/RW - drive from there and install proceeeded correctly.
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2003-06-23 20:09:35 UTC
Strange things seem to happen with some combination of CD media and drives. I've seen literally thousands of bug reports which come down to this...
