Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1718
Installation from bootable Cdrom fails if 2 promise ide controller cards are installed

rawhide-1.3 bootable cdrom
redhat-5.2 bootable cdrom
machine with 5 ide drives & 2 promise ide controller cards +
one on board controller.
While attempting an installation of rawhide 1.3 I was unable
to get past the fdisk/disk druid area due to errors. I then
tried it with redhat-5.2 and was unsuccessful (I cant
remember the exact reasons) Ultimately I got the box
working by removing both cards and installing the os. Then
readded the cards and rebooted.
This might be something more for the release notes than a
search for a solution because it was easy to workaround the
problem once I figured out how to do it.
I need very verbose messages. What problems are you seeing?
I wont be able to give very detailed messages as I did a workaround
and the machine is now running in our data center.
My guess is that if you can run the install ok and get past disk druid
on a system with 2 promise controllers then its safe to close it.
Sorry I cant help more.
This looks old.
