I want to install fedora 17 but when select "Start Fedora 17" my pc's hanged After a few minutes and In this period not display any thing and show black screen.
Please Help me!
I have bought a HP-g6-2230sa laptop, which comes with win8.
I have managed to install fedora18 in it.
But the problem is I cannot make it to boot f18 by default. The usual process to boot to fedora is: start the machine-> be very fast to press F9-> select Fedora (or else it will go to os boot manager and will boot win8).
I like so much the fedora, I`m using it now on my USB pen drive and I loving it:dance:
But... after the installation on my HD, I select to boot Fedora, then the screen became black and I can`t do anything. I can onlye see a blurry on the top of my monitor and I can see a little of my mouse pointer on the top of screen and I can move it.
I have googled this and I refuse to believe the answer is "older video card" or "ubuntu". Does anyone know what boot parameters to use or how to get Fedora to start the install process in a resolution other than the "Optimum resolution"? resolution=640x40 vga=ask. These do not work.
I'm a beginner to Linux. I installed Fedora v.7 a couple months back on a Dell desktop (dual boot with WinXP). I am trying to upgrade to the latest version now and having some problems. I tried to upgrade to Fedora v 10 using yum update, but get the following error: "Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: anaconda-upgrade-install".
