This crash occured in the F12 Alpha installer when it was detecting storage devices.

There were 2 x 1TB Seagate 7200.12 drives, in a 2 partition Intel ICH10R "fake raid" RAID configuration containing and existing Centos 5.3 installation.

After deleting the fake raid partitions and setting the BIOS to AHCI mode, this crash no longer occured.

Hi Andy,

Did you have a closer look at #519101 ?
I showed that manual activation with dmraid -ay avoids the crash
there is a problem with assignmnet of unformatted partitions
and there is at least for ESB2/ICH and LSI firmware a problem in firstboot.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2009-09-02 17:52:39 UTC
This should be fixed by this commit:

Once a rawhide compose with anaconda-12.20-1 in the install.img has been done, you should be able to install from rawhide without issues.


About bug 519101, the backtrace you posted there has the same root cause as this bug, so the duplicate marking is correct (and that backtrace should be fixed too).

I think their might still be other issues with the ESB2/ICH and LSI firmware, but please file a separate bug for those, and where possible one bug per issue.
