Description of problem:
Only hdb shows in diskdruid during installation, hda and ata-raid is missing.
I was planning on installing on hdb anyway but since hda was not available I
had to make a boot floppy and install grub manually on hda/MBR after
I have tested this 3 times now, same result. Hda shows up fine in 8.0.
ASUS CUSL2 mobo, Intel 815 Chipset.
acpi=off has no effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation from CD or net-boot floppy
2. when choosing either Autopatiton or DiskDruid hda is missing.
Actual Results: Not able to install os or grub on hda.
Expected Results: hda should be available for installation.
Many people dont know how to fix this... High severity? Or am I the only one
with this problem :)
Has your hda disk ever been in an ataraid array? If so this may be a duplicate
of Bug 80294. You need to completely remove the ataraid RAID superblock as
described in that report or anaconda wont recognize your disk. (Anaconda
detection code needs fixing and/or we need a userspace tool to remove that stuff.)
Can you try downloading the update disk image from
http://people.redhat.com/~katzj/phoebe-pdcdetect.img and see if it works using
it? (Information on using update disks is available from
