Description Jeremy Katz 2001-01-11 06:40:56 UTC
Due to the problems seen with some motherboards and lba32, it really needs
to be possible to specify in a kickstart config that lba32 mode should not
be used to avoid ending up with an unbootable machine post-kickstart.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-11 16:55:56 UTC
This is being addressed by only putting the lba32 option in if the boot
partition ends above the 1024 cyl limit.  The installer will not automatically
partition a boot partition this high.  The user will have to manually make a
partition and designate it as the boot partition.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-11 16:56:36 UTC
We hope to have a better resolution to this issue in the next release.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-09-10 21:13:20 UTC
Should be better now.
