Installation does not find the hard drive
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
When installing FC7T2 on Inspiron 1501, hard drive is not found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux version 2.6.20-1.2949.fc7 (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc
version 4.1.2 20070222 (Red Hat 4.1.2-3)) #1 SMP Mon Feb 26 18:33:03 EST 2007
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install FC7T2
No hard drive is visible.
Hard drive present (as sda)
I find it odd that nobody has reported this. I have not just searched,
but reviewed all kernel bugs in Rawhide.
I'm going to attach dmesg. It contains some suspicious timeouts...
I have no idea if the hard drive is. Vista works fine on this box,
maybe I can ask it?

This appears to be an MSI issue. Booting with pci=nomsi fixes the problem.
we now default to msi off by default (users who want it can boot with pci=msi)
It seems to cause more problems than its worth to have it on by default right now.
