Description Jeffrey Haun 2004-08-08 19:10:53 UTC
Installation appears to go as expected, but when system reboots after initial installation, drive is assassinated. Machine hangs at BIO screen and will not procede if drive is connected to IDE port. Fedora Core 2 (Also any version with Kernal 2.6 or higher. How reproduseble:I have distroyed 3 drives so far installing any linux past kernal version 2.6 The only version that is safe to install is fedora core 1 kernal 2.4.22. This is on a Gateway system S10 with intel Chip Set 845G. Drive venders have been Western Digtal and Seagate, both with identical results. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Full normal installation 2. 3. Actual results: Reboots system at end of install, but computer is rendered unbootable Expected results: Additional info:

These result happen with Distribution of Mandrake 10 and Suse 9.1 as well. If this is not the place to ask for help, please redirect me to the right place. I am not willing to sacrifice any more hard drives for try and fix this myself. These result happen with any linux distribution with kernal 2.6 or higher.

Do you have the most current BIOS installed? This sounds like (probably) a kernel problem if it's occuring across multiple 2.6-based distributions.
Comment 3 Jeffrey Haun 2004-08-11 14:27:27 UTC
I checked and there are no new BIOS version available for this machine. I agree, it probably is a Kernal issue. But I don't know where to take this. I figure this is a real show stopper for anyone using this chip set (Intel 845G). I know I'm not willing to sacrific another hard drive to find a SAFE distribution.

Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel updates for security problems only. If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the product version accordingly. Thank you.
