Description Need Real Name 2002-08-22 23:10:53 UTC
Description of Problem:  Install crashes with variety of different error codes
when repeating same steps partition errors 116,117, partition signature error, 
anaconda runtime errors, install errors while installing components from disk 1 
(never make it to disk 2)

Errors on install of HP Pavillion ZE5170.
  Have tried running partition magic, only installing RH (removing all XP 
partions), installing from free space, using previously created Linux 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RH 7.3

How Reproducible: Every install

Steps to Reproduce: Can not get to run successfully, always errors

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Additional Information:

Following is dump from Anaconda report created when it failed.  (Anaconda does 
not ALWAYS fail.  Sometimes the failures are almost immediate - IE the device 
will not be visible at all.  I will reboot, and there it is.  Or run once, 
error 116, run again - same steps, fails reporting that it could not format '/' 
partition.  Results are random.

Here is Anaconda results:

There are errors coming from your first IDE hard drive which are causing the
issue you are seeing.
