Description of problem:
In order to upgrade a machine to FC2 with an adaptec 7892 SCSI
controller I decided to create my own install bootdisk. It works fine
(ie. detects devices), but when the netstg2.img is downloaded I get
the following messages:
...
*transfering ftp://my_ftpserv/Fedora/2/RedHat/base/netstg2.img to a fd
*copied 18411520 bytes to /tmp/ramfs/netstg2.img (complete)
*mntloop loop0 on /mnt/runtime as /tmp/ramfs/netstg2.img fd is 21
*failed to mount loop: No such device
*Error mounting /dev/loop0 on /mnt/runtime (No such device)

On the other log file, I get:
...
<7> ISO 9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A
<4> Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
<4> VFS: Can't find ext2 filesystem on dev loop0.

I made the bootdisk as follow:
*get the diskboot.img from fedora 2 install CD,
*add 2.6.8 modules to initrd (cpio archive modules.cgz),
*add kernel 2.6.8 to diskboot.img
*burn as bootable CD.


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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. burn the CD with new diskboot.img
2. boot on CD
3. choose ftp install
    

Expected Results:  Continue install after downloading netstg2.img

You don't have all of the modules you need (ie, your boot disk is
malformed)
Comment 2 Fané Henry 2004-09-16 00:04:42 EDT
Thanks for your reply, I took all modules from 2.6.8.1-521 kernel with :

find /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-521/kernel/drivers -name *.ko | cpio -o -H
crc > modules

So you are right because I don't took modules from
/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-521/kernel

I will try.
