How to fix the “Pane is dead” error during the installation of Fedora on a HP Proliant server

This small post shows how you can fix the “Pane is dead” error that happens during the installation of Fedora on a HP Proliant server.

The error in question:

We got the the error whenever we install one of the new Fedora version on our “HP ProLiant DL580 G5 or “HP ProLiant DL360 G5” servers but by doing the steps below I can succesfully install Fedora without problems.

Step 1: Boot the server with the Fedora install source and wait at the boot menu
Boot menu you should see looks like this:

Step 2: Get the full configuration options line to show
At the Fedora installation boot window press tab while standing on the “Install Fedora xx” option

So press tab while standing on this option: (Install Fedora 20)

After pressing “TAB” it should now look like this:

Step 3: Add the following text to the end of the line.
modprobe.blacklist=cnic,bnx2i

It should now look like this:

Now press “Enter” and your installation will start.

And that is all to let Fedora successful install! I hope it helped someone as it helped us.
