Description alessandro brovelli 2005-07-14 08:15:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
After some file system problem I decided to upgrade from FC2 to FC4. I started a fresh installation, partitioned the HD, and while anaconda was gathering the informations required to start the installation, I got the error:
"error: Warning: The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/hda (Device or resource busy).  This means Linux won't know anything nothing about
the modifications you made until you reboot.  You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /dev/hda." After this error I can dump a log file and the installation aborted.

If I start the installation using non-graphical mode, I got the same error, but I can ignore it; the processes finishes without trouble, but at the first boot the system is unable to start (kernel panic, try to use init=, etc.).

It's very annoying because I can install and run MS-Win instead...

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.'Standard' installation
2. Maybe you should need and HD with some problems?
