Description klaus thorn 2004-06-07 20:10:20 EDT
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.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a ExelStor G140 Hard disk as boot device
2. reboot (not halt or poweroff) computer

Actual results:
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.

Expected results:
hard drive keeps spinning during reboot as with red hat 9,
hard drive is spinned down only for halt or poweroff

Additional info:
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
behaviour off.

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:
