Description of problem:
Athlon 64 3000+ (939)
4*80GB Seagate SATA HDD
3Ware 9500s-4 RAID card
Motherboard: Tyan s2865G2NR
The machine fails to boot after installing RHEL4 with two RAID1 arrays as described here:
When set up as a single RAID5 array, the machine will boot and work fine. On running system updates ($ yum update) the system will fail to boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up 4 sata hdd through 3ware 9500 hardware raid card
2. install rhel 4
3. reboot and run "yum update"
Actual Results: system hangs at a flashing underscore during boot (grub boot loader).
This is odd, since we support up2date not yum with RHEL4. And there are no log
files etc so this could be almost anything. Closing, since there is no Issue
Tracker associated with this BZ.
