Processor: Intel Core i5-3470 Chipset: Intel C216 chipset RAM: 2x4GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz HDD: 500GB SATA 3.0 @ 7200RPMProblem: I tried installing Fedora 17 on above mentioned workstation having Intel HD Graphics 2500.Meanwhile I faced following two issues: 1) During installation steps upto creation of partition,the screen was not clear. Screen was blurring, and all the pixels became such zoom that I was unable to read anything about the partition and other stuff (right from beginning.Though I managed to install fedora 17 by looking into the snapshots of fedora installation steps over internet. 2) Main issues is here: After installation of Fedora 17,when I restarted, it booted up & just before the login screen the screen goes dark, with some random blue-pixels at the top (sometimes with a message, like "oh! somethingwent wrong..... unrecoverable!"). Solution: Aim: appending 'nomodeset' in kernel option /etc/default/grub file steps:1)After Installation of fedora, reboot. 2)Point Fedora 17 in grub menu, and press 'E', it will display a window titling "GNU GRUB version 2.00~beta4" 3)go to the line that starts with "linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.3.4-5......UTF-8 rhgb quiet.." 4)erase everything after UTF-8(i.e. rhgb...) and write 3 there. After that line should look like linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.3.4-5......UTF-8 3 5)press f10,you would be redirected to text-console(rather GUI). 6)login there with your user name and password. 7)open the file /etc/default/grub and append in the last "nomodeset" in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, after appending it would look like: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 SYSFONT=True rd.luks=0 LANG=es_ES.UTF-8 KEYTABLE=es rhgb quiet nomodeset" (append only nomodeset in last, dont modify other parameters) 8)save the file, and run this command >grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg 9)reboot, now graphics should work smooth.
