SOURCE: NIC card not detecting in dx2280 in RHEL / Linux

if it is not or if you don't know, then just go into setting when you first boot up your computer by either pressing F2 or the Delete button.then go into your bios and find where the plug and play is and enable it then save and exit. reboot and then see if it detects the nic card. if that doesn't work then you would need a pro to install for you. let me know if that helps or if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: HP compaq NX9420 fails to

Hello Dear,

If you tried to install the windows XP on a failure HDD then it will behave like this.
You need to check your HDD first, Go to your BIOS and run the HDD Self test.
If it successful then Just format your HDD before installation it should work.
If it failed then you need to replace your HDD.

With regards
FIXYA team

Steps to install linux through server?

Let me show some basic steps which will help you to install RHEL through server or Network

Before we start, i would like to point out some informations
  • Steps shown here are explained with RHEL 5. But the procedure is same for all versions of RHEL which supports Network installation

  • For the Convenience to take snapshots, i'm installing RHEL on a VMware (Virtual Machine). So to me, some hardware resources are limited like physical memory, hard disk space, Graphics adapter ..etc

  • My Server which contains RHEL images is " LinuxServer " and its address is

  • Location of RHEL5 Installation Image on this server is: /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386
    Shared folder is: RH5/i386
    So if we want to access this folder through network, then the address would be :

  • Due to limited hardware resources of my machine, i would proceed with TEXT MODE installation which is no different than the Graphical Mode.
So lets start.

I have a bootable CD of RHEL which i will need to start with. You can use any live CD or DVD of RH ( which support network installation ) to start the system. I inserted the Disc and set system to boot with it.

If you successfully able to boot from the live CD / DVD, you probably will get a screen like this

Type next to the boot: linux askmethod text and press

The option "askmethod" will set the installer (anaconda installer is default installer for RedHat) to ask us for which installing method should be used. RedHat Linux supports many installing methods like
  • CD or DVD (Local CD / DVD are supported. If you want to use Remote CD/DVD, you will have to mount it in a shared folder and proceed with network installation method)

  • Hard Drive (installation files stored)

  • NFS Image (images stored in Network Filesystem Partition over a network)

  • FTP (Installation files stored on FTP Server)

  • HTTP (Installation Files stored on HTTP Server)
The option '" text " will tell installer to use TEXT MODE installation. If you prefer Graphical Mode installation, you can skip this option.

After pressing Enter Key, the anaconda installer will load necessary files and drivers to memory and start the second level of installer. You will see,


After essential drivers and files are loaded, installer will ask for installation language, keyboard etc.

I select English as my installer's Language

On this screen, Choose the layout of your keyboard. In Most cases, The Keyboard Layout is USA, so is mine. But if your layout is different, choose appropriate Keyboard Layout.
I Choose US

Since we start the installer with askmethod , installer will ask for the method of installation.

I chose HTTP, since my RedHat Server is HTTP server.

When we chose Network Based Installation, Installer will prompt for configuring the network.

On this screen, Select what all IP technologies we want to be supported by the installer.

After selecting the IP configurations on previous screen, the installer will look up and resolve IP addresses.

After resolving IP Addresses, Installer will ask you for location of installation files on the network
Since we selected Installation over HTTP , we need to specify the server (Host name of server) which contains the binaries or installation files. And we needed to specify the location of the installation files in the server. Remember this location is relative to server and web accessible directory
ex.: in my case Server Hose name is LinuxServer and IP of server is
Installation image is located under /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386
But the location should specify on this screen is /RH5/i386 NOT /home/nightflare/Test/RH5/i386 or


After entering the details necessary to find the installation images, it will try to get those files.
If everything went fine, then it will try to pull the files from server.

If you see this screen, you can relax. System successfully found the installation files on server and retrieves it.


Rest of Installation is just same as Installation by Local CD/DVD

Just Skip this window. RHEL also comes in CDs which spans over many CDs each with a installation no. like DISC 1, DISC 2 ... etc. This is not our case, so we can skip it safely.

This screen ask to confirm our option to Skip. Choose Skip

Searches our system for any previous installations of RedHat

If Any previous installations were found, installer will ask for whether to Upgrade the previous installation or we need to Reinstall. I choose to reinstall

On next screen, we are requested to specify the partitioning. We can either accept the Proposed Partitioning or proceed with Custom Partitioning.
I Choose Custom Partitioning as it will provide more control over how the spaces are alloted ..etc.

Since I go with Custom Partitioning, I can edit, create and even modify partitions according to my needs.
Remember, I'm working on a VMware. In real cases you may dealing with larger disks or able to set up LVM or RAIDs

Select Whether Need a Boot Loader or not

On This screen, we can choose have extra boot options or not. Booting options are like typing single will cause kernel to log in to single user mode rather than multiuser mode

RHEL 5.3 fails to boot at "bringing up interface"

I found the solution.
Take in accunt that I'm a total newbie on Linux boxes.

1 - Previous to any change, following RH deployment guide, I backed up the network config on a file called "network-config-" with:
"system-config-network-cmd -e > /root/network-config-"

2 - After the Server refuses to complete boot sequence, I rebooted the server and entered on interactive mode pressing "I" just after RHEL splash.

3 - Then I accept all options with "Y" but "Bring up interface bond0".
Then hit "C" to complete boot sequence.

4 - Login normally as root and revert the changes with:
"system-config-network-cmd -i -c -f /root/network-config-"

5 - Reboot the server and all return to normal.

Installing RHEL 5 on ACER ASPIRE 4530

1) Get SATA drivers for Windows (whatever flavour you use)
For you who want to get driver AHCI for Acer 4530, the driver can be download here:

2) Control Panel, Add New Hardware.
3) Yes, already connected, browse to the bottom, hit “add a new device”

5) Choose your driver from the list that returns. (Mine was the nVidia SATA controller)
6) Uninstall other standard IDE controllers (Not Primary nor Secondary)
7) Reboot and enter your BIOS
8) Change to AHCI mode
