Description Nick Mumbach 2002-08-20 19:35:20 EDT
Description of Problem:
I used to be able to change my auto-partition wizard details in 7.3. If I try to
do so in Limbo, the resulting Linux load cannot find the root partition and
fails to boot with a PANIC error, details of which I apologize for not saving.

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

How Reproducible: Every time I have tried, thus far

Steps to Reproduce: 
1. start install, choose DELETE ALL LINUX PARTITIONS and then choose the Auto 
Partition Wizard (or, I THINK, manual partition does the same)
2. change ANY default option
3. when time to reboot and start Linux, it cannot find root partition and fails
with a PANIC message whose details I failed to record.

Actual Results: cannot boot to Linux (limbo Again!)

Expected Results:

Could you please try the 'null' beta release which just came out this week?
Comment 2 Nick Mumbach 2002-08-23 19:22:57 EDT
I can try 'null' beta release, I guess, but it takes 9-18 hours to download, no 
matter WHAT mirror site I go to, even with 10mbs (supposed) access.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 16:11:54 EDT
Well perhaps you could try the final 8.0 release now it is available.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-24 14:22:36 EDT
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you have any new information to add
to this report.
