Description kevin lyda 2005-01-27 23:15:14 UTC
during the install of fc3 you need to create a 1 meg apple bootstrap
partition.  disk druid allows you to do this and it allows you to
create the correct fs.  but what it doesn't do is keep it up at the
beginning of the disk.

this results in a non-booting system if you've installed a large disk
on an early imac.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2005-01-27 23:31:45 UTC
It should be 800K, not 1M. IIRC Disk Druid doesn't actually let you
specify that?

Comment 2 Colin Charles 2005-01-28 17:41:08 UTC
dwmw2: no, disk druid's smallest size is currently 1MB as opposed to being 800K

kevin: the large disk on an early iMac issue and not having bootstrap as the
first partition isn't the problem imho; how's your pram doing? Please provide
information about your disk here as well

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2005-02-14 04:47:46 UTC
Open firmware will happily boot off any partition. 

The only reason to have an Apple_Bootstrap at the start of the disk is to boot
off that if your PROM gets zapped for some reason IIRC.

Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2005-02-20 00:26:00 UTC
This should be fixed in anaconda-
