Description Vit 2005-06-14 19:29:19 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
running setup on dell optiplex gx1 machine, tried to machines, first machine did not recognize the cd1 on the step after choosing the region, might be due to the cdrom problem, tried it on another similar box and was able to load into graphical part of the installation, chose all defaults and installer crashed stating that it was not able to update kernel with /dev/hda2 parameters and that the partition is not going to be accessible until reboot is executed, executing reboot did not solve the problem. fc3 works perfectly fine on the same box, same cds work normally on any other box so the dloaded image is not the problem

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.get dell optiplex gx1 system
2.start installing fc4 with all defaults
3. problem is going to occur when setup will try to format the partitions.

Actual Results:  installer chrashed

Expected Results:  proceed with format and copying files
