Description Richard Neuboeck 2005-09-12 08:22:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Fedora/1.0.6-1.2.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
After upgrading to kernel 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4smp or kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 the system stops during the boot process. However the system still reacts to a soft reboot (CTRL-ALT-DEL). The last displayed kernel messages are as follows:

Loading ata_piix.ko module
ata1: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x6800 ctl 0x6402 bmdma 0x5400 irq 66
ata2: SATA max UDMA/133 cmd 0x6000 ctl 0x5802 bmdma 0x5408 irq 66
ata1: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133 490234752 sectors: lba48

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 and kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 or kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
2. reboot the system

Actual Results:  the system stops the boot process

Expected Results:  the sata controll and its disc should have been initialized properly and the boot process should go on

Additional info:

Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz

lspci output for the SATA controller:
00:1f.2 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801GB/GR/GH (ICH7 Family) Serial ATA Storage Controllers cc=IDE (rev 01)
