http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Recently purchased following laptop: Compaq Presario CQ61-310 AMD Sempron CPU 64-bit NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G graphics card 2Gb memory 250Gb SATA hard drive Currently installed with Windows 7 Home Premium. However, I wish to install Fedora 12 on this but the LiveCD (booted from 8Gb USB) hangs on boot. The blue screen with the new Fedora symbol comes up but thats as far as it goes. Ubuntu LiveCD (from USB) boots up fine. Any suggestions how to fix this? (HowTos)
