Description Charles R. Anderson 2007-05-30 22:21:47 UTC
Description of problem: The text found at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Installer should be changed to use a new libata workaround, or removed completely if there is no suggested workaround yet (which I believe is the case unfortunately). ide1=xxx won't work with F7 kernels since they use libata. Installation Related Issues Sony VAIO Notebooks Some Sony VAIO notebook systems may experience problems installing Fedora from CD-ROM. If this happens, restart the installation process and add the following option to the boot command line: pci=off ide1=0x180,0x386 Installation should proceed normally, and any devices not detected are configured the first time Fedora is booted.
Comment 1 Paul W. Frields 2007-05-31 01:20:35 UTC
This segment has been removed from the release notes; the Docs team welcomes information on a proper workaround. If you come across one, the wiki-based release notes are editable by anyone in the Fedora community with editing access.
