Description Robert Klauco 2001-05-02 14:23:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98; DigExt) When launching installer of RH7.1 from bootable CD, it always finish on dialogue about type of installation (from CD or HDD). When I select CD I always get message like "Unable to find CD-ROM with installation", but it is already in maschine (it was booted up from it...). I found a problem like this on Listserver, but the solution there (disconnect CDRW drive and use only CDROM) did not work for me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. insert bootable install CD 2. start installation, pressing ENTER in installeation type 3. choosing language and keyboard layout 4. choosing installation type - from CD or HDD Actual Results: Installer is always unable to find CDROM drive with RH7.1 installation. Expected Results: Start to install - ask about components etc. I have an QDI mainboard with Celeron 500, 768 RAM, 1x20 GB Maxtor PLUS (IDE), 1x15GB IBM (ide), 1xTEAC CDRW (ide) and 1xTOSHIBA CDROM (ide).

Try making a boot floppy from the boot.img in the /images directory on the cd. Boot from that floppy and select CDROM as the installation media. Does this fix the problem?
