Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186185
FC5 install on VMWare: "no disk drive"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC5
Install FC5 in VMWare Workstation 5.5.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new virtual machine with "Red Hat" profile
2. Configure FC5 ISO as CDROM drive
3. Start virtual machine
Installer pops up a requester saying that no disk drives were found,
and asks for additional disk drivers to be added.
Same as FC4.... it found the VMWare virtual disk drive using the automatically
configured Buslogic SCSI driver.
Workaround: When requested for additional drivers, add the Buslogic SCSI driver.
The BusLogic driver doesn't export PCI ids it supports. You can work around by
manually loading the buslogic driver or by configuring vmware to use mptfusion
instead (the latter is probably the "better" idea)
