Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231557
Installaation impossible on NFORCE2 chipsets.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
IDE Hardisks not detected on card with Nforce2 chipset
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. You can't install from CD otherwise Anaconda will simpley not load and you
will see nothing
2. Install from network or from an USB hard disk
3. Proceed until partitionning. Disks are not visible. Neither are CD readers
Impossible to install
FC7test1 already caused problems with NFORCE2 chipsets but you could tell to use
the AMD driver aand it worked. In FC7test2 it is much worse, it doesn't work at
all. Also I have noticed that the sata_nv module is loaded but it doesn't seem
to support nforce2
Of course it doesn't work with sata_nv, this is for sata and my disks are pata.
The driver to use is pata_amd (nforce and nforce2 chipsets are derived from
achipset made by amd) but anaconda sees nvidia and without thinking it twice
assigns the only driver it knows about.
