Description Thom May 2004-04-22 09:36:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040414 Epiphany/1.2.1

Description of problem:
Boot FC2 Test 2 installer. Installer correctly detects video card,
monitor etc and proceeds to "Disk Partitioning Setup". 
Select either automatic or manual using Disk Druid.
Anaconda produces an error box "No Drives Found".
Clicking "OK" reboots and the bios correctly reports one hard disk found.

The URL above describes another report of this problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC2 T2
2. Get to Disk Partitioning Setup.
3. Fail to detect disks

Actual Results:  No disks detected, Anaconda reboots

Expected Results:  hda detected, partitions created, install
completes, don't have to be unproductive in windows

Additional info:

Hardware is AMD64 3000+; on gigabyte GA-K8N nforce3 motherboard,
generic IDE hard disk (which windows correctly installs on).

dmesg reports that hdc (DVD drive) and hdd (cdrw) were detected, no
sign of the HDD on /dev/hda.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-22 16:47:40 EDT
This should be fixed in test3
Comment 2 Thom May 2004-04-28 06:20:38 EDT
Just to confirm that I just installed test3 on this machine fine.
