x86_64 install on Dell PowerEdge SC430 fails to load SATA driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:09 EST
Description of problem:
At least one of our PowerEdge SC430s won't install RHEL3 x86_64, complaining
that "No hard drives have been found." anaconda tries to load ata_piix.o, but
fails. Installing the i386 version of the tree works. The same issue shows up
in U6 and U5. I haven't tested farther back than that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt an x86_64 RHEL3 install on an SC430
"No hard drives have been found." Warning before loading GUI. If continuing
past this point, Disk Druid will fail to find any devices.
Installer should find the drive and install.
"/tmp/ata_piix.o: init_module: No such device"
This is a 4GB system, but passing "mem=1024M" when booting doesn't help.
