Description Aniruddha 2015-09-30 15:10:53 EDT
I'm trying to install Fedora server with BTRFS RAID 10 on 4 disks. The installer doesn't create a biosboot partition on all devices. Creating a biosboot partion on all devices would be expected behavior for a redundant setup. Instead only sda gets a biosboot partition.

I tried  manually configuring a biosboot partition on all four disk drives, this doesn't work.
Comment 1 Aniruddha 2015-10-01 13:55:41 EDT
I see two problems with the biosboot partition in anaconda:

1 When you select all 4 drives as install destination it only gets installed on one drive.

2 It is possible to manually create a biosboot partion on all 4 drives. However the installer always only shows 1 bios partition. The partition summary displays all the biosboot partitions you have manually created.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:04:31 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
