Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:38:18 EST
Description of problem: From kernel 2157 up I can no longer boot with my HD
connect to the onboard raid controller, mainboard Asus A7V333. I can with

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: update from 2054 to any kernel version, or switch from
normal IDE to Raid controller
Steps to Reproduce:
*** Bug 202362 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is a kernel bug, not a raidtools bug.
Installing FC5 once again and leaving the HD connected in the IDE controller -
not raid - once again resulted in a bootfailure to after upgrading software,
including kernel. The solution to make it boot again now was to move the HD to
the raid controller. So it is true that it is not a raid bug. Hope that this
new info can be of any help.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5

systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
