I have recently bought an HP Compaq dc5850 SFF running an AMD Athlon dual-core
5800B processor (same as 5800+ but more heavily tested). It came with a 160GB
HDD which I decided to replace immediately with a Seagate Barricuda 250 GB
drive (ST3250318AS).

Using this completely fresh HDD, I tried to start up the 32-bit GNOME LiveCD.
It got to the Wallpaper and then just hung there. I think the mouse was
working, but I am not certain now. I waited a very long time and then
unplugged the computer (there is no reset button) and tried again. After that
I gave up. After installing 32-bit XP Pro, I had no problem with the GNOME
LiveCD. It only happened on a completely fresh HDD.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start computer
2. Put LiveCD in the drive
3. Reboot
Actual Results:
Stopped with Wallpaper showing but no objects being drawn on the screen to
click on.

Expected Results:
I expected it to continue to boot and put icons and such on the screen.

Sadly, I will not be able to help further than this posting. I cannot wipe the
drive and start over again because it is a "work" computer.

My best guess is that it is somewhere in the HAL hardware search. It might be
that it is trying to read a disc label (which would be MSDOS for most
situations) or a partition table, neither of which would exist at that point.
Or something like that.
