Description Brandon Keepers 2006-02-08 16:02:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
I installed from RawHide on an Intel SATA raid controller using raid0.  Install completed fine, but grub was not installed.  I booted into rescue mode, did a chroot to /mnt/sysimage, and tried "grub-install /dev/mapper/isw_cjahcfchfe_Volume0" and got the following error:

/dev/mapper/isw_cjahcfchfe_Volume0p1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 Rawhide on raid0
2. reboot


Actual Results:  bootloader was not installed so system could not boot, and grub-install failed

Expected Results:  anaconda should have installed bootloader and system should have booted normally after installation

Additional info:

(hd0) /dev/mapper/isw_cjahcfchfe_Volume0

raid controller:
00:1f.2 RAID bus controller: Intel Corporation 82801GR/GH (ICH7 Family) Serial ATA Storage Controllers cc=RAID (rev 01)

The following was on virtual console 5 at the end of the installation:
grub> root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> install /boot/grub/stage1 d (hd0) /boot/grub/stage2 p (hd0,0)/boot/grub/grub.conf

Error 22: No such partition

I forgot to include the grub-install error.  When I type "grub-install
/dev/mapper/isw_cjahcfchfe_Volume0", I get:

/dev/mapper/isw_cjahcfchfe_Volume0p1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.

Is there any more information I could give to help move this along?

Comment 3 Peter Jones 2006-02-28 15:43:06 UTC
Does this work for you now?  Some of the booty code that installs grub from the
installer has changed, and I've also written the grub-install support for this
since you filed this bug.

Closing due to lack of response from reporter.
