I just installed Fedora 13 on an HP Z400, and it's stuck in an endless reboot loop (lives 2 seconds before rebooting). It's a 64-bit machine and seems to meet all the hardware requirements. Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks.

I tried installing fedora 13 a couple months back and had a similar issue if i remember. I think it turned out to be that the installation wasn't exactly valid. Try downloading from another source, or re-downloading the file and then installing fedora again. That's what I did to get it to work.

The problem turned out to be the BIOS -- HP has a special BIOS for Linux. Installing that solved my problems with Fedora.
