Default Problem with installing Fedora 10 on DVD

Hello,

I have problem with installing Fedora 10 on DVD. I downloaded the ISO and checked it before I burn it and it was ok. I burned it and now when I tried to install and I get no response. I have tried it several computers and get the same thing, no response.

Any ideas?

What do you mean with "no response"?
Did you burn the iso as an image, or as a data DVD? Must be image.

Also, did you configure the BIOS to boot from the CD drive?

The BIOS is configured to boot from CD drive. The iso was burned as an image. When I insert the dvd on the drive it goes through several stages like "language ..........." and then I have options to test the dvd or just to install, and here is where I get no response which ever option I choose. I have done several installations with lower versions of fedora and I do not get this error.

Any ideas?

How recent is the hardware in your PC and was it working fine with another OS installed? Check your hardware clock (BIOS setup) for correct date and time, make sure that their are no scratches or fingerprints on the reading surface of the drive.

I have a freind that was trying to load SuSE 11 on his machine and was having similar issues - boiled down to fingerprints and the clock was off by 1 year.

Good luck.

I have tried in several computers and some have been running Fedora 8. The BIOS , date and time are setup correctly.

Exclamation

Am I understating you correctly in that this issue ONLY applies to the one computer? If that is the case you may have something (hardware) that does not go well with the new distro or you may have an issue with your Optical Drive in that one machine.

As a first measure I would try swapping the optical drive out from one of the working machines to see if that helps. If not then you may be facing some issues with other related hardware. If the swap does work, a replacement optical drive is usually found under $40US at newegg.com or local retail shop.

If you could list out what hardware you have in the non-working machine I can take a closer look into compatibility issues.

Good luck.
