Description of problem:
Intel DDR2 Jarrell SATA system fails in grub-loader with
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Intel SATA Jarrell System
2. Install a system which has grub-0.95-3
3. Use this boot-loader
Actual Results: Error 15
Expected Results: System boots
The Intel Jarrell System has a motherboard with 7520 chipset and
nocona processors and DDR2 memory and sata onboard (ata_piix driver)
and optional scsi onboard.
The problem also
There is no problem when using SCSI discs but with the SATA
discs the described error occurs.
Problem can be fixed by installing grub-0.95-3.1.x86_64.rpm
and writing a new MBR.
And does it work with the grub packages in rawhide?
I never tried a grub package from rawhide;
original I booted the system from a SuSE grub,
at that time the same error was in rhel-4.0-beta
( issue 141950 ). After installing rhel-4.0-rc the
problem was fixed, so I just compared the grub version
and tried the grub package from rhel-4.0
Does this help you ?
PS.: Can you change the reporter name ( to Winfrid Tschiedel )
