Install FC7 not possible on sata drive (Asrock AM2XLI-esata2 mb)
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:33:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Unable to install FC7 on Asrock AM2XLI-eSata2 motherboard with sata Hard Drives.
Will install with only ide drive. Processcor AMD 3800 64.The installation will
not load anaconda stops with freeze very early on. It would point to a sata
control problem as above mentioned and may be incorrect in posting here but
seems the only relevant place.FC7 will run installed on only ide drives.Will not
work at all if sata drives present even after changing boot options.This problem
and similar has been recorded on the fedora forum by a few others, but having
checked I could not find this bug having been logged here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every attempt to install FC7 (I have tries i386FC7 with same result)
