Description Johnny Ljunggren 2005-04-13 10:14:59 EDT
Description of problem:
I am trying to install Fedora Core 4 test 2 on three newly bought Fujitsu
Siemens M430 workstations with a serial ATA hard drive included. When booting
up, Anaconda will not find the hard drive and thus abort the installation. In
the BIOS it is possible to change the ATA configuration. There are four
alternatives: Native, RAID, Compatible, AHCI. RAID is not applicable here but
the default, Native, will not work. Choosing AHCI or Compatible works.
Compatible is described as S-ATA mapped to normal IDE.
I am not sure why Native doesn't work but it would be very nice to have it
working out of the box, as there are several machines to install (by unskilled
personnel). WinXP SP2 did not have a problem with the Native mode....

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy/get hold of Fujitsu Siemens M430 with Serial ATA hard drive
2. Try to install Fedora Core 4 test 2
Actual results:
Anaconda will not find any hard drives

Expected results:
Anaconda should find and install as usual

Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 17:03:09 EDT
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
 If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]

Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.

If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..

mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak

Thank you.
