Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228462
A 1 TB raid10 is seen as a 500 MB raid when installing FC6
Last modified: 2008-03-19 17:43:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown; that of the FC6 installer CDs as of 2007-02-12
At least in this hardware.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 4 SATA hard drives 500 MB each
2. setup "fakeraid" raid10 with Intel ICH7 (built-in to mobo ASUS P5WDG2 WS Pro)
3. install FC6: there should be 1 TB available, but only 500 MB are visible
Only 500 Mb are visible
That 1 TB is visible as raid
On top of that, when finishing the installation, GRUB does not succeed in
booting from the bootable LVM where the system was installed, and remains stuck
with a "GRUB _" and blinking cursor.
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad QX6600 2.4 GHz
Mobo: ASUS P5WDG2 WS Pro
RAM: 4 GB DDR2 800
4 x 500 MB Samsung SATA HD
ATI radeon X1950 XTX 512 MB
Definitely not dmraid issue, could be kernel, but hanging GRUB also hints at
possible BIOS issues. Trying to assign to kernel, if anyone there knows
better, please move the bug in right direction.
Sorry, i have overlooked the "fakeraid" bit. This could afterall be a dmraid
issue, although i don't see why grub fails in that case. I'll flip this back
to dmraid for now.
Is this still an issue with > FC6.
If so, please provide "dmraid -rD" files in a tarball attached to this bz for
This is no longer an issue because I dropped FC completely over a year ago, in
favor of another linux distribution that didn't have the problem. Thank you in
any case for your interest.
