Description of problem:
Installer does not recognise any valid hard disk drives because of lack of
support of BusLogic SCSI driver. BusLogic Driver is not included in drvblock.img
drivers disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD
2. Attempt load of additional drivers from drivers disk.
3. SCSI Buslogic driver is not in selectable list. I cannot load the OS without
this driver.

Actual Results:  Installer does not find any valid hard disk drives to install
OS on.
BusLogic drivers are not on the drvblock.img drivers disk.

Expected Results:  BusLogic SCSI driver support

Additional info:

I am attempting to install the OS in a VMWARE session.

This was changed after beta2.
Comment 2 Ryan Bowen 2003-10-10 10:45:55 EDT
I have tried the install with the "taroon" download and I get the same problem.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-10 10:47:02 EDT
there is no download for things we did after beta-2.
Comment 4 Ryan Bowen 2003-10-10 11:09:33 EDT
Thanks for the quick response.

The version of beta I am trying was downloaded from :

Does this version support the BusLogic Driver ?  I have tried and my disk drive 
is still not seen.
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2003-10-10 11:17:33 EDT
we have not made any images available since beta2, and since this is fixed after
beta 2 there is nothing available for download that has this fix.
Comment 6 Ryan Bowen 2003-10-10 12:10:40 EDT
Am I right to assume that I will not be able to evaluate REL under VMWARE then ?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-14 00:21:55 EDT
You should be able to install using IDE with VMWare.
Comment 8 Ryan Bowen 2003-10-14 04:11:09 EDT
Thanks Bill, I have tried an install to a physical IDE drive under VMWARE and
the install finished successfully.  Thanks for all your assistance. Ryan
