6. Reboot your machine. As it boots you have the chance to this the
space bar, do so and pick the menu item called "Fedora Core 7
Installation" 7. It will go through the normal set of questions. Once it
gets to asking you where you want to install from, pick hard drive and
the pick the USB drive (on every install I have done, it is the very
last dive listed at the bottom). The enter the directory in the bottom
box (or just "/" if you put it in the root). 8. From there it will let
you pick the rest of the options.
Hm, this is exactly what I've done, except I used the images/diskboot.img
w/memdisk (from syslinux) instead of the the kernel and initrd directly.
I compared the MD5 sums of the kernel and initrd from both isolinux/ on the
DVD and from the diskboot.img image and they're exactly the same. (I did
try booting a kernel and initrd directly from grub, but I used the ones
from images/pxeboot, which I have used in the past (for doing network upgrades
on machines without a working netboot ROM).) I could try using the kernel
and initrd from isolinux directly with grub, although I doubt that would
make a difference.
Can you tell me what your "legacy USB" settings are in your BIOS?
Is the grub you boot with on your normal internal (PATA/SATA/SCSI) drive?
Is there any way I can more directly debug this? I don't have a shell since
that comes from stage2, which isn't loaded yet. I suspect the other remote
debugging options are not yet available either. Hm, yeah, looking over the
initrd contents, there really isn't much available at all.
