Fedora 8 Installation

I am having difficulties installing Fedora 8. I get Uncompressing Linux...Ok, booting the Kernel. Then I get I/O error on devie sr0, logical block 1149232. The logical blocks progress with the same error. Then I get Warning: Cannot find root file system! Any suggestions. This is my first attempt to come on board with Linux, I wiped out a Windows 2003 server and would love to complete tis install. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated.

How to install linux fedora 7, already i am using windows 7, now i want to use dual os's , please tell me how to install linux.


WARNING: I will not be responsible for any data loss that occurs. It is recommended to backup your hard disk to external media before commencing any of these operations. 1. Download and burn the Fedora LiveCD. It is recommended that you use the latest version, Fedora 14, instead of 7, but you can use Version 7 anyways. 2. Boot up with the Fedora LiveCD. Select Install. 3. Follow the instructions displayed onscreen. When you reach the partitioning screen, you will need to resize your Windows partition. Resize it to a reasonable size (1024MB =1GB). Leave at least 5GB for Fedora to install. 4. After resizing, select the "Use Free Disk Space" option, and continue installing. 5. Your system will be installed with Fedora and the GRUB bootloader. The GRUB bootloader will allow you to boot into both Windows and Fedora.
I hope this post helps you. I appreciate your vote very much!

How do i install fedora 11


hello, download the cd from here: http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/11/Live/i686/Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso
follow the installation guide: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f11/en-US/html/
not hard at all, just input your cd and start your computer from cd rom. then when you have started from the cd you see the gnome desktop. double click on the fedora install icon and follow instructions.
Good luck, and GO Linux!

Can we install fedora 11 on Intel d102gcc2 mother board ; I tried couple of time earlier to install various fedora versions , but all went in vain, I think the problem is with sata drivers , please advice!


If you've used live CD Boots, you could try and add nomodeset to the kernel line in the grub boot menu. This would disable kernel mode setting, which causes problems on some graphics cards.

In the BOOT Menu, Press TAB while highlighting "BOOT" Option

Just add "nomodeset" to the end of the text..This disables Kernel Mode Setting and F11 will be up and running....

Fedora -9 installation


it should be supported.

Either boot in single user and login in the terminal window, go to your xorg.conf file and edit the resolution to something smaller e.g 1024x768.

How i can install linux on hp dv2519tu laptop.


i think the cd from which you are installing might have got scratched so the cdrom couldnt read some files which are needed for installation ... so i suggest you to try changing cd....
there is no problem with installing in laptops we can install linux in any laptops......
i suggest you to install fedora core instead of redhat...
fedora core has good functionality and it has inbuilt firewall security also for internet and it has got good options ... so try installing fedora core 5,6, or 7 .. if you dont have means you can download from net as linux is open source to all any1 can download from net ...
there are many other linux available like ubuntu,suse, mandrake etc....
suse linux is also very good it is the very user friendly linux ...
there other linux which can be run by cd only which doesnt need of installing it just like knoppix live cd etc....
be care ful while partitioning if you make mistake you will lose all datas ....
