Description Randy Nielsen 2005-04-17 14:38:49 UTC

Description of problem:
I have installed FC3 on an HP Netserver LC2000.  The server has 6 9.1GB SCSI HDD's.  I had to remove the NetRaid Controller to install and created a Volume Group instead of RAID.  The install does not create a grub.conf nor a menu.lst file.  (Grub-install --recheck) cannot find a bios regardless of where I tell it to look.  This prevents Up2Date from adding the new kernels.  This same install works fine for a Dell Power Edge 2600 SCSI RAID and a single HDD on a PC.  The problem must have something to do with the Volume Group.  During boot-up the Grub menu can be accessed but only has the one entry.  I am not sure where it is getting this entry from since there is no grub.conf.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I hae reinstalled several times.

Actual Results:  Same issue.

Expected Results:  Expected proper Grub install.

What's your partition layout look like now?

Can you show me "/proc/partitions" and "/proc/mounts" ?

I attempted to send these as attachments, but the browse window would hang every
time I accessed the /proc directory.  I used the vi editor.  I have also
attached the

I seem to have the same problem.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:08:32 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
