Description of problem:
The installation method 'hard drive' fails with 'no drive found'
error. A copy of the Fedora repository was downloaded to one partition
and installation onto another partition by booting from boot.iso CD
was attempted. Installation from NFS server onto the same drive works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC2 test2 boot.iso
Steps to Reproduce:
Tried to install FC2 test2 by downloading the entire directory (not
ISO images) onto the hard drive, the booting from the CD and selecting
Hard Drive as the installation method. Installation failed with a 'no
drive found' error and a dialog asking to select a driver.
Then copied the distro to a NFS server and restarted the installation
with the NFS method, which worked ok with the same hardware.
Actual Results: Installation from a Fedora repository copy on one
partition onto a second partition of the same IDE hard drive fails.
Expected Results: Installation method 'hard drive' should work.
The hardware is as follows:
IDE controller: Intel 82801BA IDE U100
Drive: IBM [ Desk | Death ]Star 80 Gb
Old Yamaha CD burner connected via a Adaptec SCSI adapter, which has
nothing to do with the installation, but the aic7xxx module was loaded
by the installer.
