SOLVED Intel D2500CC Motherboard fedora 17 live installed

I searched for this solution for a long time and I thought I would share it.


I have not had good luck with the Intel Atom Motherboards using a single vga display. Because of this I have been stuck on Fedora 14 i686 because of video problems. I use ELO 1280x1024 touchscreens for my embedded systems.



Let me explain the issue. The G3650 chipset has 4 displays and all of them are found when starting fedora 17 live and the LVDS-1 is detected as connected even if the bios says it is disabled. So here is the 4 steps for getting the install to work.


1. hit TAB and edit the startup command on the live iso and add:


video=LVDS-1:d video=DVI-D-1:d video=DVI-D-2:d


Complete the setup.


2. On the reboot, type e and edit the linux command adding the same paramaters.


3. After the boot install grub2-tools.


4. edit /etc/default/grub and add the parameters to the linux parameters and run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/crub.cfg


This should solve the problems of running fedora 15 /16 /17 any live installer.


This will probably work with D525MW D2700MUD and most of the others.


I hope this helps someone.

Thank you Sherman,

Also work on DN2800MT and D525MW with Fedora 17 full dvd install.

For these mainboards just need only ' video=LVDS-1:d ' parameter.
