Description Florin Andrei 2007-02-05 22:21:14 UTC
Description of problem:
AMD Athlon 64 X2
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
2 x 320GB SATA

I see the installer loading the sata_nv module, but after that, it says:

"Unable to find any devices of type
needed for this installation type.
Would you like to manually select your
driver or use a driver disk?"

On same system, FC6 has a very similar issue, see bug #227186

Ubuntu, Knoppix and CentOS work just fine.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. just try and install FC7test1
Actual results:
The installer claims it cannot find the two SATA drives on my system.

Expected results:
The installer should detect the drives, just like Ubuntu, Knoppix and CentOS.

Does it work if you manually load pata_amd?

Comment 2 Florin Andrei 2007-02-05 23:34:46 UTC
Manually loading pata_amd helps the installer detect the drives correctly.
However, it gets stuck further down the road (at the end of "checking
dependencies in packages selected for installation").
Looks like a different bug, I'll file a separate report.
