Description Ronny Fischer 2005-10-22 07:32:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/9.00 (X11; Linux i686; U; de)

Description of problem:
I'm using 4 SATA harddisks (2 on ICH5 on motherboard, 2 on Silicon Image PCI 
hostadapter) Anaconda recognizes first the host adapter, then the adapter 
installed with the motherboard. When installing on the second disk on ICH5, 
this disk is labeled as sdd, not as sdb (as the order usually suggests).
this makes GRUB labeling wrong

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC on system with 4 hdds (2 on hostadapter)
2. use defaults

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-10-24 13:30:14 EDT
The module load order is based on what is presented by the PCI bus (using ACPI
with 2.6 kernels).  Unfortunately, x86 machines are not good about exporting any
information about what boot devices are. If you do advanced boot loader
configuration, you can change the disk order to match what the BIOS expects.
