Hello friends, I need some help, my laptop got a weird error loading Fedora 18 when the mouse is connected in the usb hub, it is an Acer Aspire 5552-5898 with Windows 7 and Fedora 18 installed, the mouse is Microsoft, Windows loads perfect but when it is loading Fedora, if the usb hub is connected alone, Fedora loads perfect, if the mouse is connected in the laptop usb, Fedora loads perfect too, but when the mouse is connected in the usb hub, Grub hangs on "loading initial ramdisk", I tried to search something in google but I don't find nothing like this on internet. Please some help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

When in grub menu, press e to edit the Fedora grub entry. Then, go to the linux line and remove 'quiet' from this line. Press F10 to boot and see if you get any error messages. Update your post with the messages you get.

If you did what I said correctly, and it still hangs without any further messages, it probably means that Grub hangs and even Linux kernel doesn't run.
