Description of problem:
I have a system, with a PCI IDE card, with 4 IDE drives attached to it. On the motherboard I have 2 ID drives and 1 CD drive and 1 DVD drive. After upgrading, via a clean install onto a new Hard drive (old drive crashed) from Fedora-3 to Fedora 7 the system does find all the drives on the IDE card. I then installed a ubunto system, into a separate partiton and it sees all the drives.
I have attached a fdisk -l output from both environments.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot and select the fedora-7 option from grub menu.
I have rated this high, loss of data, this maybe incorrect since the data is there but it is inaccessible.
Created attachment 160305 [details]
fdisk -l when booted in fedora
Created attachment 160306 [details]
fdisk -l when booted in ubunto; finds 2 extra IDE drives
We need to know the kind of controller that is failing.
The boot messages from the working system should have that.
My apologies. I did take note of that but forgot to include it.
The card produces this
IT8212 Raid Bios V184.108.40.206 F/W Ver 02093030.
Is this sufficient?
