Description of problem:
Installer hangs when loading sata_piix module on Dell Poweredge 800 when trying to install to a SATA harddisk from cdrom.
FC3 installer works fine on the same machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a Dell poweredge 800
2. put FC4-test1 ISO in
3. boot and wait :)
Installer also hangs on my system but when loading the SATA_SIL module and
displays a message about disabling interupt #10.
My system is based on an Intel SE7505VB2 server board.
This problem is also reported in bug number 151347 but filed against the kernel
rather than anaconda.
FYI, I installed FC4t2 on SATA hdd booting from hda hdd with intel i865 chipset
on Gigabyte mb.
I have this machine in Red Hat QA. Latest rawhide-20050426/i386 hangs when
loading ata_piix driver. FC4-re0425.0/i386/i386 shows the same problem.
On console 4 I see the following:
<7>libata version 1.10 loaded.
<7>ata_piix version 1.03
<4>ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1f.2[C]: no GSI - using IRQ 3

Whats odd is that RHEL4-U1-re0425.nightly/i386/i386-AS works fine on this
machine. I checked the versions of libata and ata_piix and they are the same
according to dmesg. RHEL4 prints the same lines as above with these appended:
libata version 1.10 loaded.
ata_piix version 1.03

Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done
unfortunately, the machine is now in production 6000km away from me. I cannot
help you test anything with it anymore.
I still see exactlly the same symptom as descibed in comment #1 with FC4 FINAL.
