Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 254701
inspiron 530 boots fine from livecd, install kernel fails
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
Just got a shiney new dell n530 and after poking around on the installed os
decided to give f8test1 a shot. The livecd booted and ran very nicely. Decided
that I would switch to f8, and the install appeared to complete fine.
On the reboot, it appeared the installed kernel could not deal with the ICH9
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from livecd
2. install to disk
hangs while trying to load the ata_piix driver
Installed version to work as well as the live cd.
Tried several other methods:
1) install via the DVD, but it also could not find the sata controller.
2) from the 070824-i386-boot.iso. ditto.
3) from the f8test1 rescue cd. ditto.
Created attachment 172781 [details]
sysreport while running from the livecd
Changed the BIOS setting for the ICH9 SATA to RAID, and it works like a champ
