Description Alexander v/d Kooi 2006-09-26 10:35:55 UTC
Description of problem:

Using ahci sata2 hardware on intel 975x chipset, or any other controller or 
chipset, after the Fedora Core 6 test3 x86_64 installation has been done, 
which went 100% ok, after a reboot, the os doesn't load the ahci module so 
that ahci support is not available thus the newly installed fc6-test3 os is 
not reachable/mountable/working because the ahci controller module isn't 
loaded. Perhaps an initrd.image problem, forgotten to load the ahci module.

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

Fedora Core 6 test3 x86_64

How reproducible:

Just use ahci controller, i use it at intel975x chipset on asus p5wdh 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install sata2 hd on motherboard
2. turn on ahci support in bios
3. install fedora core 6 test3 x86_64 (maybe other versions too), when done 
installing and rebooting, grub loads the kernel fine but the kernel doesn't 
support ahci, and ahci module is forgotten to load.
Actual results:

Non working os, since the os / sata ahci hd can't be found/mounted

Expected results:

I expected that since the installation, the ahci module/driver gets loaded 
automatically, in the actual firing up of the newly installed os, the ahci 
module would be loaded too, but this is not the case.

Additional info:

This bugreport may be on initrd, anaconda or grub, i actually don't know and 
have spend around 8 hours in 3 days to find out how to post a bug report, so 
forgive me if its not in the right topic.. i almost let go of it and don't 
report it because it was so hard for me to find out how to report it and where.
