Description yichuan 2006-03-25 00:49:24 UTC
Description of problem:
  When I tried to install FC5, the anaconda started, and after I select 
languageand keymap,the system showed a error message:

Invalid partition table on /dev/mapper/sil_aeacbidcdjea
error code ab79

Then if I keep clicking the "ignore" button, the installer will ask me to 
Erase the entiredisk, which I cirtainly don't want to. Or it will show a 
unusable partition list, so the install can not go on....

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

FC5 final

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
boot from cd1, and follow the lead
Actual results:

can not find partition , install can not go on

Expected results:

find partition, install go on

Additional info:

  I am using a ASUS p4p800se motherboard(with a fake raid in ICH5R, but I do 
NOT use it), and 2 identical SATA hard drive. But I do NOT use any raid.
  I installed a XP on first disk, and an mac OSX on second. I used the acronis 
Disk Suit to delete the OSX partition and created an ext3 partition. But I 
assume this would't be the problem.(?)

Had you ever created a fakeraid?  If so, and you haven't deleted the metadata,
we still end up trying to read it.  Booting with 'linux nodmraid' will make it
not be detected
