Has anyone gotten the x86_64 Test 3 to install from the DVD on a box with SATA drives?


Here is the trick to get it to work.

Install as normal. (If you already have an install you can skip this step. ]:> )

Boot off the same disc in "rescue mode".  ("linux rescue")

At the prompt:

chroot /mnt/sysimage
cd /boot
mkinitrd -v --image-version --nocompress initrd 2.6.17-1.2630.fc6

Edit /etc/grub.conf and add the following line:

       initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6

Save, sync the drive and reboot. With luck (and if you did it right), it should work.

I had a problem with X as well, but reconfiguring the x server fixed it. (Just follow the bouncing prompts.)

Hope that helps.
