On top of that, when finishing the installation, GRUB does not succeed in
booting from the bootable LVM where the system was installed, and remains stuck
with a "GRUB _" and blinking cursor.
My hardware:
CPU: Intel Core2 Quad QX6600 2.4 GHz
Mobo: ASUS P5WDG2 WS Pro
RAM: 4 GB DDR2 800
4 x 500 MB Samsung SATA HD
ATI radeon X1950 XTX 512 MB

Definitely not dmraid issue, could be kernel, but hanging GRUB also hints at 
possible BIOS issues. Trying to assign to kernel, if anyone there knows 
better, please move the bug in right direction.

Comment 3 Petr Rockai 2007-03-14 09:03:54 UTC
Sorry, i have overlooked the "fakeraid" bit. This could afterall be a dmraid 
issue, although i don't see why grub fails in that case. I'll flip this back 
to dmraid for now.

Comment 5 Heinz Mauelshagen 2008-03-19 11:03:54 UTC
Is this still an issue with > FC6.
If so, please provide "dmraid -rD" files in a tarball attached to this bz for

Comment 6 Albert Cardona 2008-03-19 11:49:06 UTC
This is no longer an issue because I dropped FC completely over a year ago, in
favor of another linux distribution that didn't have the problem. Thank you in
any  case for your interest.
