This is a follow-up to bug report 526063. The anaconda 12.32-1 install completed, but the reboot failed--Disk Boot Failure. Apparently grub was not installed or not installed properly. Tried a rescue boot, chroot /mnt/sysimage, could not grub-install.

Command grub yielded "Unknown partition signature".

grub-install /dev/mapper/jmicron-GRAID and
grub-install "/dev/mapper/jmicron-GRAID           "
yielded not found responses.

grub-install /dev/dm-0 yielded /dev/dm-0 does not have any corresponding bios drive.

Next tried an upgrade reinstall, with the resulting dump.

Under PM8.01, was able to make partition p1 active again, and regained DOS/XP boot.

Any help would be appreciated.

Additional note: Following this failure, a clean install was attempted which failed on attempt to create linux /boot partition. Report filed #527035.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2009-10-08 11:06:41 UTC
I hit a lot of BIOS RAID related bugs while setting up a system with a partition
layout similar to yours using the installer to do the partitioning (there were
a few BIOS RAID specific regressions since F-11).

I've fixed all of these now, did an install with a similar disk  layout and then
upgraded it, this went without a hitch. So I think one of the fixes I've done also fixes this.

I'm going to close this as WORKSFORME for now. If you want to retest, please
do a network install using boot.iso from rawhide, together with one of the 2 following updates.img files (the one for the arch you are using):
