Description Stelian Pop 2002-03-11 11:30:47 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-reiserfs i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
Did a GUI CD install of Hampton on a machine which had a Red Hat 6.2
installation (/dev/hda1 swap, /dev/hda5 /).

Partitionned the drive by adding a /dev/hda6 for the new /, leaving the 6.2
installation intact.

In the bootloader screen (grub selected), only /dev/hda6 was present as a boot
partition. I saw no button to add a new partition, nor did the /dev/hda5
partition get recognized as a valid boot partition.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reproduce the above

Actual Results:  Grub only boots from the Hampton partition.

Expected Results:  2 entries menu: original 6.2 and new 7.3 beta

This is part of the new bootloader framework which isn't getting done for Hampton
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-05-06 16:54:49 EDT
You can add new partitions to chainload again in CVS
