Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 472245
OS does not start after installation on RAID
Last modified: 2008-12-03 09:08:53 EST
Bootloader does not start after RH 5.3 GA Snapshot 2 installation on RAID
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create RAID0 in OROM. Use default settings.
2. Boot RH from DVD
3. Choose New Installation. Use default settings on all pages.
4. On Suggested Partitioning page use configured RAID for installation and bootloader.
After installation restart, bootloader should start automatically
Bootloader does not start.
I see that about a week after filing this, you've tested this again with snapshot3 and there the bootloader did work (but you hit the infamous bug 472888 / bug 471689 bug. As the issue reported here (bootloader not loading / showing) is fixed in snapshot3, I'm closing this bug.
We do realize there are still issues later on in the boot process as you've mentioned in bug 472888 and we are doing our very best to make sure that this will be fixed in snapshot 5, which should become available next monday.
