Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125487
hd spindown prevents reboot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
When I reboot then some component of Fedora Core 2 spins my hard drive
down. Thus it is not ready when the BIOS tries to find it. Reboot
fails, sometimes with awfull klick sound of the drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
standart kernel of FC2, but I'm not sure whether it is the kernel or
where I could configure this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a ExelStor G140 Hard disk as boot device
2. reboot (not halt or poweroff) computer
hard drive spins down during reboot and is not ready for BIOS early
enough. Reboot Fails. Office Users horrified. Selling FC2-preinstalled
Computer not possible.
hard drive keeps spinning during reboot as with red hat 9,
hard drive is spinned down only for halt or poweroff
The Hard Disk(40GB) may be a bit slow but it is cheap and currently
available, so I guess it is popular. I need to know where to turn this
When I cold-restart the hard disk has enough time (at least now that I
turned off Quick Selftest in the BIOS)
Try one of the test kernels here and see if this fixes it:
