Default boot loop

Hi,

I am trying to upgrade graphics card and install fedora. I'm going to use two OSs (XP and Fedora in two separate HDs). I successfully install geforce 5200 on XP but I have problem with Fedora. It seems that the problem is not about driver.
I couldn't even install fedora with geforce (it stopped in the middle of installation), so I used the old video card to install fedora. After installation of fedora, I re-connected my monitor to geforce and it continually re-boot (boot loop). It continully re-boot even in runlevel 3 (text - mode). It re-boot right after de-compressing kernel.
My guess is that it is a kind of hardware problem. Motherboard is MS-6577 (on-board video card.). I disabled on-board video in CMOS but it still doesn't work.
Does anyone have similar problem or any idea?

Thanks.

hmhm, it reboots directly after uncompressing?

That looks like an incompatible kernel/hardware mix. Can you try a different kernel?

I tried 2.6.5-1.358 and 2.6.8-1.521, but both have the same problem.

Default Re: boot loop -> solved

Hi,

I solved the problem. I just changed PCI card to AGP. Now it is perfectly working. If anyone has similar problem, do not waste your time. Just try to change the hardware!
