System is a Dell 670 workstation
The motherboard on these systems has the new Intel E7525 chipset
that requires ICH5R SATA drivers - hence ata_piix
From the screen during the CD boot - RHEL4-Beta2-i386-WS-disc1.iso

Comment 2 Don Scales 2005-01-11 13:01:23 UTC
Booting the CD and using linux rescue noprobe allowed me to load the
drivers individually.
Loading ata_piix caused a failure (as expected)
Booting the CD again
Loading the scsi driver aic79xx loaded ok but did not find the scsi
Using the Beta1 cds and loading aic79xx found the scsi disks.

Suggestion - The Beta 2 CDs have down level BOOT drivers ?

this should have been fixed in RC, and subsequent builds.
