Description of problem:
I ran through the install of the beta 3 separate times. The first time
through I selected Grub as my boot loader, upon finishing the install and
rebooting, the machine booted fine. Second time through I selected Lilo
as my boot loader. The installer finished, but upon reboot, I got a
kernel panic, could not find fs. The third time, I once again chose Grub,
and voila, upon reboot, the system came up normally, with no issues.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the beta installer.
2. Select Lilo as your boot loader instead of Grub
3. Finish the install and reboot.
4. Note the kernel panic.
Actual Results: Kernel panic - Unable to load FS
Expected Results: I expected the machine to boot normally.
I read some of the other issues posted, and I noticed one issue that
mentioned some possible problems with Grub. This problem may be related
to the fact that Grub was installed the first time through, but possibly
the changes showed up the next time when I selected Lilo to boot with. No
We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.
This should be fixed in a later build.b
