My Friend’s Presario v3521

My friend, Piju aka Dolphin just brought a brand new laptop, Compaq Presario v3521 at Lowyat, yesterday.

15 July 2007 (Sunday)
-Piju asked me to accompany him to Lowyat
-Piju decided to buy the Compaq Presario v3521, I have persuaded him to buy the Targus backpack as well
-At night, Fenris told me that Piju’s laptop was unable to boot into live cd

16 July 2007 (Monday)
-Piju sms’ed me, asking me whether I’m busy or not. Gave him a call and invited him to come to my office at night
-Did several experiments on different OS, here is the result

OS Booting Result
RHEL 5 Server Installation process works like normal
RHEL 5 Client The installation process asked for driver of dvd drive
Fedora 7 The installation process asked for driver of dvd drive
Ubuntu 7.04 Booting process hanged up after 2 lines
Solaris 10 The installation process will boot the system automatically

-It seems only RHEL 5 Server is not having any problem with this laptop.
-Thanks to my intuition, I think the Linux kernel is having a problem to detect the dvd drive. So, I did the network installation of Fedora 7. Well, it works perfectly. Hence, Piju is now a certified Fedoran!
