Does it show anything for a mount like an error ?
Have you installed linux on a SSD ?
What is the kernel version ?
What is the problem you are facing while installing Fedora ?
I can't imagine the image I'm using is corrupt. I just downloaded the iso via torrent, I will plug my usb drive into my main system and see if it boots. I haven't noticed any specific errors but I also haven't looked for any. Yes I have installed Linux on an SSD, currently have 11.10 32bit on my main system, 2500k, Sabertooth p67, and an Intel X25-V 40gb SSD. No problems at all. Not sure what the kernel version is, I assume it's what ever ships with the distro I'm attempting to use. I did have any problems with installing Fedora. Booted off my USB stick, installed to SSD and rebooted off the SSD. I just don't know much about Fedora other then it's based on Red Hat and It's for more advanced Linux users which I am not.

I have gotten my system to kernel panic, and if I remember correctly it was because I was overclocking. Yours could be an SSD problem (idk, I have no experience with SSDs) if you installed it on the SSD. Sounds like it could also be a kernel regression, but I wouldn't count on it. You should try playing with BIOS settings to see if you can get it to go without a kernel panic.
Otherwise, that's all I can suggest. I've never had issues with kernel panics that weren't my fault.
I get the kernel panic before I even get the chance to install any Linux OS other then Fedora. It acts as if it is going to boot, gets to the "page" where I have 10 secs to choose what to do before it just goes ahead and boots into a live environment. I haven't overclocked this system at all, but I may still be unstable. I have managed to install Win7 so I can run some stability tests to see if that's my problem. I have never had issues installing linux to an SSD before. But it's just just with the SSD. I have tried a regular old HHD and still the same issue.
What is kernel regression?
I think my problem may be in my ram. I'm running 2x 2gb sticks of Gskill Pi 1066 but it has to run at 800mhx because my board wont do 1066.
I have had Ubuntu 11.10 installed on this machine once before for half a day then took it over to a friends house get some help with setting it up to be a server when he asked me why I was using a desktop version and not server so we went ahead and started to install the server version. Never changed anything in the bios just created a bootable USB drive and away we went. Haven't had any success since.
