installation of RHEL4 does not detect disks BUT offer to load i2o modules
then disks are detected

installation of RHEL5 load i2o_core but nothing else
modprobe i2o_block etc. does not work (alt-f2 in install process)

Comment 1 cervajs 2007-04-24 14:51:03 UTC

1. boot with "linux noprobe text"
2. add driver "i2o block"
3. after that disks are detected
(complete installation not tested now)

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-08-23 20:13:34 UTC
We believe this issue is fixed in 5.1.  Please test and verify.  If not, please
reopen the bug with your support representative who will raise it through the
appropriate channels.  Thanks.

Comment 4 Mike Carr 2007-08-29 20:33:51 UTC
Confirmed that workaround suggested does give read/write access from the
installer console. Have not proceeded with destructive install as of yet so
isn't fully tested. Expect to complete this this weekend, so this ticket can be
closed September 5 in absence of negative feedback to the contrary.

Comment 5 Mike Carr 2007-09-01 23:50:34 UTC
I've just completed destructive install of server and can confirm that the
workaround suggested in comment #1 works flawlessly. 

There was a minor issue with the installer itself in that it doesn't complete
final install tasks after reboot until system is booted into runlevel 5, and
performing a text-mode install defaults the runlevel to 3. Might want to point
this out as an addendum to process above as a newbie sysadmin wouldn't
necessarily recognize that the installer wasn't finished its tasks.

Thanks for your assistance with this process - much obliged
