Description of problem:
Installed RedHat 7.3 using HPT37x RAID drivers: "expert text updates."
Anaconda settings were changed, and the postinstall *only* crashes if the
updates were previously applied.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot off of HPT37x boot install disk
2. Load driver from driver disk
3. Load updates from driver disk
4. Install packages from local CDROM
Actual Results: Dialog box appears: asking to quit, save back trace, or
debug. Install terminates after selecting an option. System must then be
rebooted, and new installation is not bootable.
Expected Results: postinstall should have completed, GRUB boot loader written
correctly, and boot disk creation screen should have appeared.
An "independent developer," rather than HighPoint Technologies, apparently
wrote the HPT37x RAID drivers. The bug occurred when installing on integrated
HPT370 RAID controller on Abit KT7A-RAID motherboard. The drivers should work
correctly with the 7.2 installation, however. I recommend checking
compatibility with 7.3

So you did not use a boot image provided by Red Hat?
I did use a boot image... However, I believe it was provided by High Point
Technologies. This issue may be best resolved by their developer.
Unfortunately we cannot support their boot image. I hope they are able to assist
