When installing Fedora you may encounter a kernel panic in the very beginning of the process. This is something experienced in other GNU/Linux distributions as well and it is related to incorrect identification of the 965P as G965 (kernel issue).

Applicable to Fedora Versions

  • Fedora 7


  • Kernel panic occurs on boot, prior to installation.
  • Some Intel 965P based motherboards

Doing the work

Simply add the following to your kernel boot parameters (press e while on grub screen over your boot option of choice):


You must also add the above kernel option to your grub.cong/menu.lst file in the section of the kernel options for given boot options. Should you encounter any kernel panic during boot process after a successful installation, it is because you have not added this option to your kernel boot parameters


Use any of the above information at your own risk.
