I have just installed FC4 on a SONY VAIO VGN-FJ1S laptop.
Installation went flawlessly but the system hung up upon reboot at
the "Hardware Initialization" stage, just afer printing "storage
network" on the screen.
My guess is that the problem is related to the strange Phoenix BIOS
in the machine which, in Windows XP, is assigning IRQs above 15 to
the network card, USB controller, wifi card, Firewire, etc.
