I'm getting this same error after doing a clean install and full update. My
configuration looks almost identical to the above except that my root volume is
"rootvg" versus "VolGroup00".
Comment 2 Adam Pribyl 2007-02-28 11:17:45 EST
Same problem for me with 2.6.20-1.2947. I think problem is related to topic
"Live CD FD7T1 won't boot on some machines" discussed on fedora-test-list.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-03-02 12:39:34 EST
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2007-March/msg00095.html.
Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2007-03-03 22:27:47 EST
Martin, do you have a SCSI system? I suspect this is a dupe of bug #220470.
Comment 5 Martin 2007-03-04 12:31:08 EST
(In reply to comment #4)
> Martin, do you have a SCSI system? I suspect this is a dupe of bug #220470.

It's a Virtuall Maschine (VMWare-Server) on a SATA System.
The Disc is handled like a SCSI-Disc.
Comment 6 Kwan Lowe 2007-03-04 12:53:00 EST
Same here.. VMWare-Server image presenting a BusLogic SCSI adapter to the guest VM.
Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2007-03-04 14:00:33 EST
Interesting. Is it possible in that version of VMware to emulate IDE instead and
disable all SCSI? (Not as a solution but as a diagnostic test.)

In the meantime, I'm going to mark this as a duplicate.
