Description Josep Pons 2006-03-23 09:17:35 EST
Description of problem:
I have installed Fedora in two machines, at home, v64, and at office. And with
the two I had the same problem.

At home the first unit in Bios was the floppy disk, and at work it was the
cdrom. In the two cases the DVD-rom was the second unit. In the two cases the
dvd didn't boot (with a system related with doors there are no problems). At
home I used bios to change the start order, so dvd was the first. This worked,
but at work, I have to switch the cables, cause bios limitations, about the
order of the cdroms (I can change by bios the order respect floppy or hd, but
not between cd/dvd units)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 5

How reproducible:
You only need two units to be loaded before the hard drive and make that the cd
or dvd was be the second one

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Put the fedora install dvd in the second unit (before hard drive)
2.Boot the computer
3.See how the dvd doesn't get loaded
Actual results:
Don't boot if this is the second unit!

Expected results:
This have to boot, in the second, third of ten unit

Additional info:
Do you really need so many info? It seems stupid to explain this simple thing so
many times in so different ways...

Sorry for my english

Sorry, this is a bug in your BIOS and there's little that we can do about it
