Shalom,

Which update are you using?

You may need a later update to take care of hardware issues.

Also, check the OS support on this computer via the website. Many base HP Compaq systems have no Linux support.

Re: Red Hat Installation getting hanged in start itself

What type of 'hang' is it? Are you still able to use your input devices (keyboard)? If you can, try hitting Alt+Right-Arrow-Key, which should bring up the console with diagnostic/log information. That might give you a clue as to what is stopping the install.

Hi,

No, I am not able to use my Keyboard as it also got hanged after installtion got hanged.
Also, I need to confirm that whether dx2480 PCs support Red Hat Linux or not.
