Description Stuart Hayes 2004-11-29 11:30:41 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET 
CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
After booting a Dell PE2650 with RHEL4 beta2, dmesg has the following 

"scb2_flash: warning - can't reserve rom window, continuing
CFI: Found no SCB2 BIOS Flash device at location zero
scb2_flash: flash probe failed!" 

Hardware configuration:
2* 2.4 Ghz /12GB memory /PERC3Di/PERC4DC/Intel1000MT/2*BCM570X/AIC-

This problem was found by one of our test groups.  I haven't 
personally had a chance to look at it yet, but I suspect this is a 
message that is printed when the kernel is probing for a certain 
flash device that isn't supposed to be in the system... not sure why 
it is so verbose with the messages if this is something that isn't in 
most systems.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system with RHEL4 beta 2
2. examine dmesg

Actual Results:  error message seen

Expected Results:  no error messages
