Description of problem:
Attempting to partition disk or set mount points results in an error with an
abit nv7m nforce board and all of the ide drives I tried to use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into install
2. Partition the disk
Actual Results: Attempting to install over previous installation (i.e.
repartition and format).
When partitioning the disk or selecting the mount point of an existing partition
an error is generated stating that the device or resource is busy and it
couldn't write the partition table.
Rebooting after installation shows the partition changes, but the disks that the
installation just occured on are empty. Rebooting and just selecting the mount
point of the partition (no re-partitioning) generates the same error except the
disks are written to and the installation works.
Expected Results: Partitioning should have been successful
Could you give the precise list of steps to reproduce this issue?
