Description Richard Czerwinski 2003-04-03 00:51:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
LS120 configured on HDA with boot disk, Hangs on "CHECKING ROOT FILESYSTEM".
LS120 appears to be in a endless seeking loop, no additional messages are
displayed. The only recourse is to force a system reset or power off. If there
is NO disk present in the LS120 the system boots normally and the drive can be
accessed.The same type of hang happens on shutdown/reboot but I do not remember
exactly where the error occurs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.18-14

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from LS120 on HDA
2.Leave the boot disk in the drive during the boot process
3.@ "CHECKING ROOT FILESYSTEM" LS120 sounds as if in endless seek.

Expected Results:  Should have determined disk present and continue
