Description of problem:
Just downloaded FC2 test2 and tried to upgrade my Laptop (Sony
PCG-SR17K) which already has FC1 installed.
The installer runs fine until you have to choose which type of
installation method. I tried choosing CDrom or Hard Drive and I get
the error "Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this
installation type". Kernel output when the installation first boots
shows that both the hard drive and the CDROM were correctly detected
by the kernel.
At this point I have not attempted a network install, but it looks
like it may be my only method of installing if this bug is not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off of CDrom disk 1
2. Choose CDROM or Hard Drive for installation method
Actual Results: Produced error "Unable to find any devices of the
type needed for this installation type" and then asked for a driver.
Expected Results: It should of detected my CDROM or Hard drive so I
could continue the installation
Looking at alt-F2 I got two interesting messages
devices is IBM-DJSA-220 - hda using ignore (not loaded)
devices is Sony MSC-U01 - sda using ignore (not loaded)
I've never seen that before...when does the "ignore (not loaded)"
What sort of storage adapter do you have? Stock IDE?
How did you boot?

Do you still need this information or do should I enter the data in
bug 118881? BTW...the controller is an Intel 82371AB/EB controller
(taken from WinXP)
I booted it normally....and with "ask method" from the CDrom. I tried
both hard drive and CDrom install. The CDROM is a PCMCIA adapted unit.
