Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23765
need to be able to differentiate linear/lba32 with kickstart
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:38 EDT
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.
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.
We hope to have a better resolution to this issue in the next release.
Should be better now.
