Description Braden McDaniel 2008-12-13 07:51:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora does not boot successfully after installation.  I get the error message:

  Volume group "VolGroup00" not found

This system is using LVM on RAID10 with a 3ware 9550SXU-4LP card.

I am able to use the installation CD to boot to rescue mode, where the filesystem does get mounted successfully under /mnt/sysimage.

I was using this same configuration successfully with Fedora 9.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I've tried "mkinitrd --with=3w_9xxx" in rescue mode. It didn't help.

Can you try also including "--with=scsi_wait_scan"? 

A more proper fix is described in bug #466607 comment #57.  Can you test that and post results there?  If that works, you can close this as a duplicate of 466607.

Comment 3 Braden McDaniel 2008-12-21 18:07:09 UTC
Using the kernel parameter "scsi_mod.sync=scan" as described in bug 466607 does get things working.

Comment 4 Braden McDaniel 2008-12-21 18:07:41 UTC
Er, make that "scsi_mod.scan=sync".
