I get the grub flash screen centered on the display
(looks like 800 pixels wide out of 1920 wide native resolution).
I can enter grub commands etc fine. When I boot I get
Trying to allocate 941 pages from VMLINUZ2
[Linux-EFI, setup=0x101e, size=0x3ac3101]
[Initrd, addr=0x79ce2000, size=0x5e1a6e0]
and then it hangs.
Same problem using both the full DVD (burned to a DVD) and
a Live CD (nightly from a few days ago, on a USB stick).
My grub-fu is pretty limited, but if someone has suggestions
they would be appreciated.
This is on a semi-new Sandy Bridge laptop. I successfully ran
pre-F15 for a couple of weeks until the SSD died. I got a
replacement SSD (under warranty), and successfully installed
Windows 7, and am now trying to install Fedora.
(It is possible there may be other hardware issues - ejecting a
CD is difficult, and Windows complains about errors trying to
eject. However, I am able to boot the i386 live Alpha, from
