Description John Rossi 2002-12-20 15:45:04 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Description of problem: loading on an Intel SCB2ATA server board with a Promise Raid controller. During installation, when it is going to format the drive it states"THe kernal was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/hdg (devise or resource busy). THis means Linux knows nothing about any modifications you made. You should reboot....." sometimes it will load everything but then when u go to reboot nothing happens. most of the time it states that there was a major error and asks to reboot and start over. Please help me. my # is 202-345-3161 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.load disk 1 0f 3 at boot type: linux updates 2. follow instructions and when at the statement "ready to install 3.here is the first error. Actual Results: depending on if I use cable select setting on the hd or slave and what bay i use. (drive 0 or drive 1) I get mixed results. I have kept the raid array off. I have ran the promise raid array with two drives and sometimes the Linux loads but never hasit rebooted to Linux. I don't think it can find the installation Additional info:

I just got the Linux program to load on the HD. It says loaded succesfully please reomve all disks and hit ok. Now when the computer reboots it goes thru the BIOS ....checking IDE hardrives then flashes No raid array setup press CTRL F6 to load array esc to continue. when I hit esc it states the following: Intel(R) Boot Agent Version 4.0.19 Copyright 97-2001, Intel COrp PXE-E61: Media test failure, chacke cable PXE-M)F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM then it repeats and adds the following line: Boot Failare System Halted

This message is coming from the kernel because parted can't reread the partition table. Matt, any ideas why?

What model is the promise raid controller?
