Description John Reiser 2007-02-02 00:11:28 UTC
Description of problem: Attempting to install FD-6.90-x86_64-DVD using "Local
CDROM" [actually a DVD on a pata interface, of course] on a machine with nVidia
CK804 nForce4 chipset (PCI 10de:0053 rev f2) fails to find any drivers for the
DVD.  sata_nv was loaded automatically from initrd (there is a sata harddrive
present.)  sata_nv does not appear in the explicit Select a driver list; neither
does "pata_nv" or anything similar enough to be recognized as applicable.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot FD-6.90-x86_64-DVD, select Local CDROM
Actual results: No driver found for install media.

Expected results: Usual installation from local DVD.

Additional info: HTTP install gets to partitioning screen, but does not see the
pata IDE disk.  The sata disk is recognized.

This happens to me too on an nForce 2 machine.  I had to manually insert the
pata_amd driver in order for anaconda to recognise the local DVD drive, even
though I had booted from that drive.
