Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2004-10-11 21:36:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Using the x86_64 DVD ISO downloaded using Bittorrent, when the install
gets to the partitioning step it shows my ATA hard drive, but not my
SATA hard drive. The last time I did an install on this machine
(nForce 3 chipset, using sata_nv driver), the kernel on the FC2
install ISOs (tried both CD and DVD) had no problem seeing both hard

As a stop-gap workaround, is there a way to tell the kernel to load
the module during boot time? And would this result in the device node
(changed in 2.6.8 from hde to sda) to be automatically created?

Tried modprobe sata_nv from the command line, but it seems that no
matter what value I pass to modprobe, it just returns silently without
doing anything

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
x86_64 DVD

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from x86_64 DVD ISO
2. Try graphical partitioning
3. Ctrl-Alt-F2 and do ls /dev

Actual Results:  SATA hard drives not seen by parted, and the device
nodes not available in /dev

Expected Results:  SATA hard drives visible, device nodes in /dev
