Now I see why using Virtual PC 2007 isn't a good idea. It sucks.
I managed to get FC8 to install in text mode to the point where it reboots. But then when it reboots it goes into gui mode and that's when I have big problems. The screen gets totally screwed up.
If I wait a while for the booting to complete and then Ctrl Alt F2, I can get into text mode... sorta.
I have access to the top six lines of text on the screen, the rest is garbled.
I was able to manage to edit the xorg.conf file using vi and change the default depth to 16 using %s/24/16/g
This is what I had to do with FC4 to get the display to work in VPC. But in this case, no luck.
I am currently trying to edit the grub.conf but am not sure what to change.
Is there some other file I can edit? Or am I totally screwed since the setup has not complete.
That's where it stops during the boot process... I can see the very top of the setup menu. But I don't know what to enter at this point since I can't see anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Okay... I just stumbled upon this link:
looks like I might have to reinstall.
