Description of Problem:
On an IBM Netfinity 5000 system,
Unable to install RH 7.1. Boots off of CD OK, but cannot read CD at selecting CD media screen.
Install using boot diskette also fails.
I replaced the CD-ROM with a Sony CDU701-F3 and had no problems installing.
Installing with "linux ide=nodma" works.
Can you please attach the contents of 'cat /proc/ide/hdc/model'? We need to
know the exact model name that the drive passes to the kernel.
SANYO CD-ROM CRD-1332P
Arjan, here's another drive for the list.
Added to the blacklist
