Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124
boot.img or supp.img fail to see installation directory on hard drive
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
8 GB drive partitioned as four 2 GB partitions in the order:
NTFS, FAT16, Linux, FAT16. Installation source is on first
FAT16 partition under directory /redhat52. When
floppy booting from current boot.img/supp.img combination,
error message indicates that source directory can't be
found. This set-up worked fine with the RedHat 5.1
boot.img/supp.img combination (seems that boot.img is
exactly same for 5.1 and 5.2). When going back to using the
5.1 boot.img/supp.img combination, the source directory
seems to be found, but an error indicating some comp 0 file
not being found is displayed.
Using "upgrade" option to bring 5.1 to 5.2.
Would be nice is the installation code had some kind of
"browse" capability to go thru the directory tree of a
source hard drive, rather than only a input text line.
Matt, please take a look at the install code and see if there is
something worng with the installation from a hard drive partition
part. I've heard of problems about that from other sources too, so
there must be something true about it. Or if all those people are
doing something wrong, they are all mistaking in the same way, which
Should be fixed in new images. See
