Description of problem:
When I try to load the OS in partition 1 on the secondary IDE hdd (hd1,0), i get the message
Error 21 selected disk does not exist
This is related to another bug ticket - 344231 - where Fedora does not recognize the secondary hdd in my system. The solution there was to add an option and recreate the initrd file. Is there something similar for grub?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have ITE IT8212F PCI IDE controller installed
2.Have two IDE drives connected to the controller
3.Have an OS installed on the secondary hdd
4.Try to reference the OS on the slave drive
Error 21 Selected disk does not exist
OS should have booted
Please read the bug report for 344231. This describes the problem with Fedora. Is there a similar procedure for grub?
The only way to boot the other os is to change the addressing on the drives -
Master to slave
Slave to master
The other OS (WIN ME) works fine when booted.
Due to the lack of response, am I on my own to fix this? If so, where can I find
out what program would need to be modified to fix my problem? I think that with
a little guidance as to the proper procedure, I can fix my problem. Thank you.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.
Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:
The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008.
Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not
receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we
are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
