Description Ben Levenson 2001-05-24 23:18:23 UTC
Description of Problem:
build qa0523.0
"Red Hat Linux" boot option from the EFI boot manager doesn't always work.

How Reproducible:
This is only an issue for the first couple of reboots after doing an 
install.  It will eventually start working.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform an install
2. reboot
3. allow system to automatically boot from the first boot option
   in the EFI Boot Manager: "Red Hat Linux"

Actual Results:
If I'm lucky the following error message will be displayed and I will be
spit out at the efi shell:
Loading.:Red Hat Linux
Starting:Red Hat Linux
elilo.c (line 74): Cannot find a loader for
Start of Red Hat Linux failed: Lead Error

Sometimes this happens when I manually select the Red Hat option and
press "Enter":
Loading.:Red Hat Linux
Starting:Red Hat Linux
and then the system hard-locks.

Additional Information:
Boot option configuration: 

This behavior seems pretty random, but in general it seems to happen
during the first few boot attempts.  Eventually the situation straightens
itself out and then seems to be fixed for good.
