Description Nils Hammar 2009-06-18 03:29:05 EDT
Description of problem: The installer fails to detect the disks /dev/sda, /dev/sdb etc correctly on a machine with the disks residing on third controller. The computer has a motherboard with both IDE and SATA controllers and the first two controllers are IDE while SATA are on the third. There is something detected, but the naming is completely wrong and not related to sda etc. But the kernel does detect the disks correctly as /dev/sda etc. The motherboard is an ASUS P4P800 Deluxe with a 3.0GHz Prescott CPU. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 11 i386. How reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:
Comment 1 Nils Hammar 2009-06-18 13:25:59 EDT
Created attachment 348529 [details] Error message from anaconda. This is the error message that anaconda provided when it failed to write the configuration to disk.
Comment 2 Nils Hammar 2009-06-18 13:27:54 EDT
Created attachment 348530 [details] Picture of device names provided by OS. The device names provided seems to be unusable later on.
Comment 3 Nils Hammar 2009-06-18 13:29:13 EDT
The motherboard is an ASUS P4P800-E Deluxe. Previously it did have BIOS 1004, but there is no change after an upgrade to BIOS 1009.

This seems to be similar to bug 496339; https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=496339
Comment 5 Nils Hammar 2009-06-18 16:00:43 EDT
After a lot of pain it seems like the only way to make things work during the installation is to accept the default partitioning and never enter the customization screen. I can't say that I like that at all - especially since I want a non-default partitioning. :(
