Postby Damien » Wed Aug 17, 2005 7:56 am

Hi,
i hope some one can help. i want to install fedora core 4 on my HP pavillion
Memory (RAM): 512 MB

Processor Type: Intel Pentium 4
Hard Drive Capacity: 160 GB

when i try to install from the disk, i get to the install menu, press enter, then it gives a long line of errors.....
basicly it dosnt go to the next screen.

Error messages may seem like meaningless text, but they contain useful clues to the cause of the problem. Since we don't have the messages, we don't have a clue :(
