Description Miroslav Pragl 2008-06-27 10:43:56 EDT
Description of problem:
This must be some BFM but after couple of updates F9 doesn't boot on MS Virtual 
PC 2007:

Red Hat nash version 6.0.52 starting 
Reading au physical volunes. This may take a while...

80% of boots

2. Sit and watch boot logging

Additional info:
Are there any kernel switches to try? I obviously use "noreplace-paravirt".

sorry, few more comments:

- i just noticed (the failed boot is way too fast) that _no harddrives are 
actually detected_ - too sort probe timeout or something like that?

- since this stared happening i can't poweroff the (virtual) machine, it halts 

- fsck found no problems (as expected)
