Description Pete Zaitcev 2007-03-14 23:34:01 UTC
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 (brewbuilder@hs20-bc2-2.build.redhat.com) (gcc
version 4.1.2 20070222 (Red Hat 4.1.2-3)) #1 SMP Mon Feb 26 18:33:03 EST 2007

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install FC7T2
Actual results:

No hard drive is visible.

Expected results:

Hard drive present (as sda)

Additional info:

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.

Comment 5 Dave Jones 2007-04-23 16:31:24 UTC
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.
