Description of problem:
I am able to install F11 Alpha OK. However, after the install the system reboots and fails to start up. I have attached my kickstart file, which I copy to a usb flash drive as /ks.cfg.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Fedora-11-Alpha-x86_64-DVD.iso DVD image.
2. Install via kickstart by appending. ks=hd:sdc1:/ks.cfg
Install runs through OK, but fails to boot after the install. The error message is:
mkrootdev: expected fs options
mount: missing mount point
Install and reboot into F11.
sha1sum passed and the media check passed.
I've been trying out raw hide today via PXE and using an interactive install.
Anaconda bails out. I have 2 sata hard drives. I'm not sure why they are being detected as sda & sdd, I would expect sda & sdb.
Find attached anaconda.log. Thanks

<5>scsi 0:0:0:1: Direct-Access VIA-P VT6205-DevM 2.82 PQ: 0 ANSI: 2
The vt6205 is some kind of card reader controller. Can you try disabling that in the system BIOS?
Thank you for your time with this. vt6205 is a USB media card reader which i have now disabled. I just tried a pxe install with same error. See attached ana2.log.

FYI I have just tried Fedora-11-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso via kickstart. Pre Installation script runs through now, however the following error message is displayed while parsing the kickstart configuration:
Specified nonexistent partition sdb1 in partition command.
Which refer to:
part raid.12 --onpart=sdb1
The previous line to this is:
part raid.11 --onpart=sda1
Running fdisk /dev/sdb from [alt] F2 screen confirms /dev/sdb1 with an ID of 83.
Any ideas? Thanks.
With the attached kickstart file in mind: h-f11-ks.cfg
I have tried today's rawhide and have got a little further.
The error message now displayed is:
Tried to use undefined partition pv.4 in Volume Group specification
which refers to the following line in the kickstart file:
volgroup sys --pesize=32768 pv.4
Sounds like your original problem is now solved, and we already have another bug plus patch for your new issue so I'm going to close this one out as resolved. Thanks for the testing.
