Description David Wise 2004-11-05 19:33:58 EST

Description of problem:
When installing from a DVD or CD on a standard IDE  interface to a
SATA drive, It makes it through the installation to ask all the
questions and format the partitions, but panics / fails when it starts
to copy/install the packages.  I have a copy of the dump, It said I
should have it copied to a floppy and sent to bugzilla.  I created the
floppy.  What do I do with the Text file it generated?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install from CD or DVD to a SATA Hard Drive
2. Fill in entries and settings for packages
3. After formatting the partitions, when it gets ready to install the
packages selected, it has a fault.  I saves the info to a floppy (it
was an option and was requested to forward to bugzilla).  How do I
send you the file I have on floppy?

Actual Results:  There was a window tha popped up that said save this
to a floppy and send to bugzilla

Expected Results:  The packages should have installed

Additional info:

I checked for clues on the web and it is reported on other forums that
this is a typical problem when installing any version to a SATA drive.
 I added a standard IDE drive and installed to that no problem, now I
am trying to figure out how to "move" it to a SATA drive and see if
Linux runs well on that!
