Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228767
No volume groups found after fresh install of "FC7T1"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
After a fresh install of "FC7T1", it is impossible to boot into the
new system because at an early stage, a kernel panic occurs because
no volume groups have been found: "No volume groups found."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "FC7T1".
2. Reboot system.
Kernel panic after the kernel does not find any volume group.
System boots up and launches "firstboot" utility.
The file layout is standard with "/boot" in "ext3" partition
"/dev/sda2" and various volumes in "LVM" partition "/dev/sda3".
The system disk is a "SCSI" device. Reinstalling the default kernel
after booting into rescue mode does not help. However, after booting
into rescue mode and installing a "2.6.18" kernel package from "FC6"
updates, it is possible to boot. I am puzzled because I thought that
this issue was resolved last year and didn't expect it to show up
again in "FC7T1".
This is likely a dupe of bug 220470.
Works correctly for "F7".
