Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61032
Boot controller order not propely detected.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
At the Boot Loader Configuration screen the boot order shown is not correct. Shown:
Actual controller order in RBSU:
It is not possible to select individual drives to boot from. You can only select
the order of the controllers.
Also, the locations for installing the bootloader are:
/dev/cciss/c0d0 master boot recoord
/dev/ida/c0d0 first sector of first partition
As I've told Compaq at least three times now for Advanced Server...
This is because the x86 does not export information on device ordering in a
consistent fashion that works on all hardware. Will be fixed in the next major
revision of Red Hat Linux, but the changes are extremely intrusive, and thus not
being backported for Advanced Server
