Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440310
Upgrade from F8 stalls at end, grub not able to install boot loader
Last modified: 2013-01-09 22:19:23 EST
At the very end of the upgrade process, the UI stalls and the tty shows that
grub install attempt failed.
grub> install --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 /grub/stage1 d (hd0) /grub/stage2 p
Error 12: Invalid device requested
However from a grub prompt in the chroot one can do:
grub> cat (hd0,0)/grub/grub.conf
and get the grub.conf contents, so the hd0 device does exist as does the partition.
What's the last thing on tty3? We shouldn't stall for that (or at least,
haven't in the past).
Somehow, I have this suspicion that tomorrow is "upgrade day"
Honestly I don't recall what was there. I've got multiple machines that are
setup to do upgrade testing tomorrow, and I'll be trying to duplicate this.
I think we've both done a fair number of upgrades now... seen this one again?
Nope, I haven't. Closing for now.
