    (1) Have you checked the sha1sum of the file you downloaded? Sounds
    like a corrupt iso.
    (2) Are you using Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso or Fedora-9-i386-netinst.iso ?
    (3) Whichever you are using, try the other one.
    (4) It works here, but only with the noreplace-paravirt boot parameter.
    You will need the same.
    Good luck. David

    What type of CPU do you have? I ran into the same problems with an Athlon
    64 X2 5600+ (dual-core), but it seems to be working on an Athlon XP-A 2800+
    (single-core). (Packages are being installed as I type this.) I did use
    the noreplace-paravirt boot parameter. Assuming the install finishes, I'll
    copy the VM to my dual-core machine and see if it works there.

    Having built a Fedora 9 VM on a single-core AMD system, I find that I can
    run it on my dual-core system without needing to provide any special boot
    parameters. I have no idea why I can't do the install with dual-core, or
    if that is even what causes the failure.

    It's not quite right; video is messed up most places where the VM should be
    in text mode.

    I have a Pentium D. For an AMD processor I don't think you need
    noreplace-paravirt, but I'm not sure.

    Perhaps not. I just tried booting the Fedora 9 install DVD on my single-
    core AMD system and it works with default parameters. Noreplace-paravirt
    may change exactly where the dual-core system hangs the installer, but it
    certainly doesn't make it work.

    I made a list of valid boot parameters that I found in a Google search and
    tried various combinations. I find that either
    ide0=noprobe
    or clock=pit
    (or both) allow the installer to start. I cannot explain why these
    seemingly very different parameters both work, nor can I explain why only
    the installer needs them. I did not do an install, but I did take it
    several screens into the GUI.
