Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53147
7.1 CD fails to detect CDrom connected to Adaptech 2940
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
Redhat 7.1 will produces the error "I could not find a Red Hat Linux CDROM
in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Red Hat CD and press "OK"
It obviously booted off my CD, however it does not load the aic7xxx driver
correctly. I have reference the boot disk and boot: Linux apic command
that Doug Ledford has put out, however even after booting off the disk and
running the Linux apic command, I am still unable to install off the CD.
My hardware is a simple Dell Dimension XPS D266 with an adaptec 1940 for
the SCSI cdrom controller.
I have used CorelLinux and Mandrake with success. Red Hat 7.1 still will
not read the media from the cd.
Any new ideas for this?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot off CD (or Ledford disk)
2. Uh... cant find the CDROM drive.
Please look for any interesting error messages on Alt+F3 and Alt+F4.
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have more information.
And here I thought that RedHat was the best Linux distribution... guess I will
have to stick to Mandrake.
