This is probably related to the partition table re-read bug we were seeing.  Are
you able to replicate with Beta 2?
Comment 2 Sam Varshavchik 2002-03-19 23:54:29 EST
I reinstalled RH 7.2, and tried to upgrade to beta2.  It worked.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-26 12:31:27 EST
Deferring to future release.
Comment 4 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-02-21 13:48:26 EST
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
