Description of problem:
This is somewhat related to 178852.
Yes this really is FC1.
I am installing on a PowerEdge SC420 with serial (SATA) drive.
The installation tells me there are no hard drives and asks me
to install devices. I pick the intel ATA_PIIX driver from the menu
that anaconda gives me. It then tells me it is installing the
driver but soon I get back to the menu which tells me there are no devices.
Continuing causes the installer to exit abnormally because it cannot find
In FC4 installations (see bug 178852) I get the message automatically
"loading ata_piix driver" and the installation works (but X server problems.
See the bug 178852).
in FC1 either the ata_piix (which comes with the installation disk) is
not working correctly, not actually there, not recognized, or something?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC1 on a PowerEdge with SATA (serial drive)
Actual Results: Installation will fail (exit abnormally) because no drives are found.
Expected Results: ata_piix should allow installation on the SATA drive.
See bug 178852.
ata_piix works with FC4 (but video problems as documented in that bug)
Fedora Core 1 is no longer supported, other than by fedora legacy.
