Description Ramavarma 2007-02-04 13:28:06 UTC
Description of problem: I have a PC with PII 266 processor and 320NB RAM,with three hard disks,one as primary master and the other two as secondary master and slave. Hard Disks HDA and HDD are of 40 GB eatch,but configured as 32 GB since the BIOS does not support larger sizes.The secondary master is of 20 GB.All are 'PATA' devices. The 'partition utility did not recognise HDA while the other hard disks were recognised as SDB and SDC HDA has five partitions(1,2,3,5,6),HDC -3(1,5,6) and HDD -3(1,2,3) While partitioning for installing fc7 test 1,the utility gave the warning that there is some problem in recognising various partitions and if continued by selecting 'yes' there is a possibility of data being lost.I selected 'no' and continued. I selected hdd3(sdc3) for installation and proceeded.The installation was completed and rebooted and final steps were also completed. After exiting and booting to partition hda5 (which had fc6 with updates installed),it is seen the partition was overwritten and fc7 installed there SIMULTANEOUSLY Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.

Moving to 'devel' as discussed on https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2007-March/msg00095.html.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2007-10-11 05:29:51 UTC
This doesn't sound like a kernel bug to me. It's either user error caused by confusion over anacondas partitioning screen, or a flaw in anaconda when confronted with an install of F7 in the presence of F6 on another disk.
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 19:01:24 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now, we will automatically close it. If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.) Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled these issues to this point. The process we're following is outlined here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/F9CleanUp We will be following the process here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this doesn't happen again.
