Description Joël Wijngaarde 2017-11-17 11:50:11 UTC
Description of problem:

When booting from LiveCD, the system is not able to find the internal SSD disk on my Lenovo X1 Carbon. The LiveCD boots up, but the disk is not available anymore in the system. When I reboot the laptop the laptop reports that the disk is missing and does not boot at all anymore. I have to turn the laptop off (not reboot) to make the disk available again.

I noticed the disk is found that during LiveCD boot when I turn off UEFI mode in the bios.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I experienced this with the BETA and the final release of Fedora 27.

How reproducible:
I tried multipe times

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put system in UEFI only mode
2. Boot from LiveCD
3. Boot takes long time (timeout)
4. Start Anaconda installer
5. Internal SSD is not available to upgrade or install

Actual results:
SSD disk not found (and fully crashed) when booting in UEFI  mode from LiveCD

Expected results:
To boot the LiveCD and be able to install Fedora 27

Additional info:

When the LiveUSB boots. I see the following messages during boot:

Error parsing PCC subspaces from PCCT
ACPI Error: Needed type [reference], found [Integer] ffff8e2c42850c18 (20170531/exresop-103)

Bought a new (more) expansive USB stick and tried again. This time it works. I mark this bug as closed
