Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 149064
boot failure from aic7902 after complete install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:16 EST
Description of problem:
RHEL4 full install onto Adaptec HostRAID (aic7902: aic79xx driver)
fails to boot. All HostRAID configuration was disabled prior to install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. obtain box with aic7902 and 2 36GB drives
2. do a full install
3. reboot after install complete
cursor moves down a couple (3?) lines from the top of the screen, but
booting does not happen.
Install seemed flawless -- until boot. More data about the
particulars of the box available upon request.
Note that this was fully functional for RHEL3U4, though there were
other issues with the aic7902 controller/driver: the RHEL3U4 driver
managed to ignore any RAID settings in the HostRAID BIOS.
After using a rescue CD to find out just what went awry, I discovered
that the actual culprit is grub (grub-install, to be precise), and
this bug is now actually a duplicate of #149305, and I have marked it
