Re: Out of Topic - Facing error during RHEL 4 AS 3 Installation ( Hangs at Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel)

Have you checked on your BIOS settings --> SATA mode -->
Configure it either
On newer PCs installed with newer versions of Linux, most likely use AHCI..
Just give every setting a try. We recently bought white boxes (on quad core), and noticed that the installation takes too long to complete, then changing the SATA mode to AHCI made a performance boost.
Well my experience could be different, but you may explore that possibility.
