Description of problem:
When installed onto an IBM IntelliStation 6849 with and Adaptech 29160LP SCSI
controller and SCSI drive. Grub or lilo are not installed. Can boot into
recover mode and install grub or lilo.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install system.
Actual Results: System does not boot. Screen goes blank.
Expected Results: redhat beta to boot.
After booting recovery mode on system "linux recovery ide=nodma" and installing
grub with grub-intall, the system booted without problem.
This system requires ide=nodma to install because of CDRom.
Is this a gui or a text install?
This happens on both GUI and text installs. I installed to a machine that had
SuSE 7.3 and told the installer to intall Grub. The system hung on boot with LI
lilo from SuSE was not over written.
And you were trying to install the boot loader to the MBR, correct?
Yes, attempting to install the boot loader to the MBR
Does this still happen with beta2 ?
I have not seen this issue with Beta 2.
