I have 2 computers with Fedora Core 5 installed and working OK. On one computer I have installed Fedora 7 without any problem and it works fine.
On the second computer it starts to boot from the DVD and the comes up with the message
"vesamenu.c32: attempted DOS system call"
I have tried all the options given by pressing the F2 and F3 keys. I get as far as the Blue Screen just before the media check then everything hangs.
I suspect that the installer can not find a driver for the monitor which is an Acer 77c. The monitor works well under FC 5.
The DVD drive is OK because I have installed Fedora Core 5 from DVD on that computer before.
The installation DVD is OK because it worked on the other computer. I made a copy of the DVD, checked it and still get the same problem.
How can I get beyond this point.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
