Description Bryan Leopard 2001-09-12 12:47:45 UTC
P42 2-16-01
4096 mb ram
(4) 700mhz proc
SA 5300 (firmware revA v1.28) in slot 7 attached to storage box with 3 
drives configured as 1 logical
NC3134 in slot 2
Embedded array controller (firmware 1.46) with 2 drives configured as 1 
logical drive

Embedded array controller set as boot controller.

drive configuration:
cciss/c0d0p1 - 512mb swap
cciss/c0d0p2 - 16gb /home

ida/c0d0p1 - 30mb /boot (set as active)
ida/c0d0p2 - 8.6gb /

I performed a full install of RH7.2 RC2 with grub selected as the boot 
loader.  I also chose to write the kernel to the /boot partition.  System 
will attempt to boot but will give the error "GRUB hard disk error".  
System will boot correctly with the boot disk made during the install.   

When I use LILO as the boot loader I do not have any problem.

Please attach /boot/grub/grub.conf, and /boot/grub/device.map.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2001-10-12 18:21:18 UTC
What is configured as the boot controller in the BIOS for this system, the cciss
or the ida array?

Comment 4 chadd hudson 2001-10-12 20:04:30 UTC
I had used the Smart Start cd to configure the IDA (embedded array controller) 
as the boot controller.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2001-10-12 20:13:57 UTC
This falls into the "boot drives not in the order anaconda expects" class of bug
