I have read many other threads here and elsewhere but found no solution...
I'm trying to install Fedora 16 x86-64. At random points during installation I get black screens that do not go away.
I have tried adding
nomodeset to the kernel options (by far the most common answer to this kind of problems) but it didn't help. I also tried it with combination of
xdriver=vesa, still with no success. I also tried
noapictimer combined with and without
nomodeset with no success.
Btw, my machine has a i7-950, 12 GB RAM, Gigabyte X58A-UD3R motherboard, an ATI 5870 graphics card (Gigabyte GV-R587UD-1GD Bios F8) and a couple of SATA hard drives.
