Expert install fails to load grub
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:02 EDT
Description of Problem:
Attempting to install in 'expert' mode will cause an unhandled exception in
the installer during grub configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. When booting from the CD, choose 'expert'
2. Proceed through install, choosing GRUB as the boot loader
3. installer fails when it comes to the GRUB configuration stage
I'd chosen to do an 'expert' install, because the regular install caused a
kernel oops immediately after the installer tried to 'configure PCMCIA
devices'. I was able to later resolve the whole issue by booting the
normal installer with the command line 'linux ide=nodma noapic'. This
occurred on a Dell c600 laptop. I haven't yet gotten a 'lspci -vvv' from
it, since I was rushed, but will soon.
