Bad : When installing Fisher, when using DiskDruid, you always got errors
when trying to create partitions.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from floppy using boot.img image
2.Perform installation using parameters linux ide1=0x186,0x380 lba32
3.choose custom install and use diskdruid
Actual Results: Errors when trying to create partitionds
Expected Results: ability to create linux native partition and swap.
note that this problem does not occur with previous version (7.0)
SONY VAIO Z600-TEK with BIOS set up : Plug & Play OS : no
Aside, from this, it is working fine now
I had a similar problem with RH7.0. Diskdruid complained that there was no
primary partition available. I solved it by deleting/rearanging old partitions.
I guess the requirement was that both /boot and / had to be on primary
partitions which you can have only 4 on each hard drive. What is exactly the
error messages you get from diskdruid?
What are these special parameters for?
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
