Description Don Smith 2001-07-13 10:26:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
After low-level formatting a SCSI drive, at the disk partitioning screen 
anaconda is unable to detect drives. It gives the error message: "unable 
to open /tmp/sda - unrecognized disk label". If you try to go on with 
installation, the system is halted.

Adaptec SCSI BIOS was used to low-level format the SCSI drive before 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Low-level format the SCSI drive using Adaptec's utility.
2. Run the installation.
3. Attempt to partition the drive.

Actual Results:  The installer is unable to open the drive - gives error 
message stated above.

Expected Results:  Partitioning works.
