Description ctolley 2000-12-05 22:07:02 UTC
Hardware:  Proliant 5500 w/3200 RAID controller (w/64MB r/w cache), 2GB 
RAM, several 9GB SCSI U2 drives for the arrays.

7.0 (respin) fails to complete its "Post Installation" portion of the 
install.  It shows approx 5% of the bar being complete and hangs there 
indefinitely (went to lunch for 1 hr and still no progress).  This seems 
to prevent LILO from writing the MBR, so the system won't boot if you 
restart it (hoping everything completed anyway).

We confirmed this problem ties directly to the 3200 controller by moving 
the 3200 controller to another server we'd successfully installed on 
before (using Compaq 221 RAID controller).  Install hung in the same spot.

Problem doesn't appear to exist in RH6.2, as we were able to install 6.2 
and then upgrade to 7.0 with no errors.  7.0 Upgrade produced no 
errors...only install.

Passed to QA to reproduce.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-11 16:05:26 UTC
Any ideas matt?

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-05-18 18:55:59 UTC
Do you still see the problem with Red Hat Linux 7.1?

Comment 4 ctolley 2001-05-23 17:01:32 UTC
This appears to no longer be a problem on 7.1.  The install went smoothly.  Any 
idea what changed in the 7.1 install?

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-05-23 18:47:34 UTC
it was probably a driver problem.
