Problem installing Linux on laptop (Centrino)
I tried installing RedHat 8 on my laptop which uses a centrino processor. During installation, after I used Druid disk to specify partitions, it told me something like my architecture does not support proper booting and advised to create a boot disk. Though I tried different ways, nothing worked. So I continued installing and completed fine.
But then when I tried booting, the kernel hung after it checked for the PCI. So, this time I booted the system with the installation disk in 'linux rescue' mode. Now, I found that the system was looking for the hard disk where it hung when using my hard disk installation.
What shall I do about it....
