I have tried ALL the Test live-cds (from 1 to 3) And on everyone the

to the new PATA implementation in the Linux kernel. This is not a
fedora specific bug. However I would have expected their to be a fix
for this in fedora. Especially this long after the bug manifested
itself. Has there been any work on this lately? How far has it gotten?
At this rate Fedora has essentially become useless on my comp. as I
cannot even boot to install it. The only way I know how is to install
a minimal fc6 and upgrade. Which still doesn't fix the problem as I am
force to stick to FC6 kernels. Any news?

Have you filed a bug including the details of your hardware?  Otherwise,
it's really hard to be able to figure out exactly what's broken.

No, I have not. Because on checking this bug tracker
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=Fedora7LiveCD
and many of the problems stated here are essentially the same thing
that I was facing.

I was told the no /dev/root problem is now "fixed". But it appears
that it has not been. Or that it was fixed yet there was another
problem that came in. I believe it has something to do with the issues
addressed here. http://kernelslacker.livejournal.com/72836.html
