Description of problem:
Fedora Core 1 will not install on Dual P4 running 3ware 7500 controller.
This same system has been running RH v9.
Disks will partition but when it attempts to load the install image
onto the 20GB / partition, it fails. Complains of potential lack of
disk space -- which is obviously inaccurate.
Thus I'm left with a newly partitioned disk layout, but no way
to load the Fedora Core 1 software.
Using the same CD, I was however able to 'Upgrade' an identical
3ware-based RH 9 system. The problem is with a full install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Simply go throught the installation sequence
Actual Results: As stated in above description
Expected Results: install image should have loaded.
Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?
Closing due to inactivity. If you continue to have this problem on a
newer release of Fedora Core, please reopen and add any additional
information to this report.
