Description Craig Gutshall 2005-05-25 13:54:02 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1

Description of problem:
System with Adaptec 2100S RAID controller and SCSI hard drives attached.  Clean  install recognizes card and drives and installs completes normally.  However,  when the computer is rebooted after the installation the computer will stop with an "Error loading operating system".

Replicated with different 2100S cards, different BIOS levels (including latest) on the 2100S card.  Attempted with different make/model HD's and different motherboards (including IBM & Tyan).

If system is upgraded from RHAS 3 to RHAS 4 (on the same computer) failure does not occur.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
grub-0.95-3.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create system with Adaptec 2100S RAID controller with two hd's in RAID1 config.
2. Install AS4 taking default hd config from install program.
3. Reboot
  

Actual Results:  System stops with "Error loading operating system" or similar message depending on motherboard.

Expected Results:  System should boot.

You manually added block-driver i2o for Anaconda? It's not enough, grub-install
will fail. "Fixed" it by putting 'grub-install /dev/i20/hda' to my Kickstart
post-section.
Comment 2 Jussi Silvennoinen 2005-05-31 07:58:19 EDT
Uh, /dev/i2o/hda that is.
