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