Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61200
unable to auto partition hd during installation, anaconda dump
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:40:57 EDT
Description of Problem: During initial installation of Redhat 7.2, received
error messages: 1. The partition table on /tmp/hda is inconsistent...often the
reason is that Linux detected the BIOS geometry incorrectly. However, this does
not appear to be the case here...safe to ignore, but ignoring may cause
(fixable) problems with some boot loaders, and...some FAT file systems. Using
LBA is recommended.
2. Boot partition /boot may not meet booting constraints for your
architecture. Creation of a boot disk is highly encouraged.
On continuation of installation, window opens with instructions to file a
full bug report against anaconda. Does not look the same as reports 56935 or
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Redhat 7.2
How Reproducible: every installation attempt, have not tried to manually
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin cd installation
2. Ignore partition table error message
3. Choose auto partition
Actual Results: receive instructions to report bug to bugzilla, installation
Expected Results: wish it would auto partition drive, waiting for instructions
to create boot disk (not sure if it would be an option later in installation
process, or if it meant one is to create it from cd)
Additional Information: Previously partitioned hd using Partition Magic,
expecting to use Boot Magic to select OS
(I had created ext2 drive, anaconda would create ext3)

Is this reproducible if you run it again? Are these CDs you burned yourself --
if so, do the md5sums match those on our ftp site?
