Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22797
when installing from bootable cdrom, aix7xxx detected but halts
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:20 EDT
While trying to install RedHat v7.0 from installation CD-ROM #1 as the boot device, the aix7xxx module is loaded and everything appears normal. It then asks for the installation method (cdrom or hard drive). When I select cdrom, it then asks SCSI or Other. If I select SCSI, it asks to select from one of the drivers even though the aix7xxx module is already loaded. I tried to chose from every driver in the menu, and even created a drvers disk and tried every driver on it without luck. Because the aix7xxx module is loaded enough to start the installation from the scsi cdrom, shouldn't it use this module for installation? The scsi cdrom is a JVC 2x SCSI CD-Recorder Model #XR-W2010. The scsi hard drive is a SEAGATE ST32550N formatted with a DOS floppy disk. The SCSI card is a Adaptec AHA-2940-UW. If I attempt to boot with the floppy drive boot.img, it reads the SYSLINUX 1.45 1999-06-14 Copyright (c) 1994-1999 H. Peter Anvin and then gives the error Boot failed: please change disks and press a key to continue.
