Description of problem:
It seems the serial ata hard drive cannot be found.
I tried rebuilding the initrd with:
mkinitrd --preload sata_nv /boot/initrd-2.6.8-1.521.reiser.img.gz

and the ram disk then contains the modules:

but again it won't boot.

older kernels boot fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.use yum to upgrade to the latest kernel
2.reboot into 2.6.8

Adding the following line to your /etc/modprobe.conf will fix this if
your initrd.img was in fact created correctly. I am running it now
with this kernel. Your drives will now be visible as /dev/sdY instead
of /dev/hdX.

I made my initrd with `mkinitrd -f --with=sata_nv
/boot/initrd-2.6.8-1.521.img 2.6.8-1.521`

alias scsi_hostadapter sata_nv

I have the same problem with fedora core 2, so i downloaded fedora
core 3 test #3 and now the hard drives are even being detected! ive
tried various settings in the bios no luck. I have a soltek nforce3
250gb motherboard.

mass update for old bugs:

Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 04:24:48 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
