I finally got board of waiting for my rather slow ASUS K53Z laptop to behave itself in Windows 7 so I installed Fedora 21 on it over the weekend. I expected it to be pretty seamless as most modern linux distros are these days… unfortunately not:

The kernel panics on boot and has to be powered off to make any progress… kernel panic

However it will boot into the safe mode and operate normally in fedora.

I'm not sure how I can collect any more details than that from it, but if you have any suggestions of things to try, or further details that are needed let me know,

I see you.

That looks like a Kernel bug and you'll need to send a bug report to the kernel maintainers here:

There are a couple of things you can try:

  1. Update the system to use the latest kernel and see if that works
  2. Use the kernel nodebug repo to install a kernel that isn't yet available in Fedora and see if that works. -

The kernel maintainers will probably request you to try the nodebug kernel anyway since they'll want to check if the bug has already been fixed.
