Re: FC7 Test2 can't be installed on vmware

It easy to say don't use SCSI, when you don't use it.
Does this mean I have to reinstall my whole Fedora devel-setup on my vmware? And what about people who have Fedora 6 installed on a SCSI disk, do they also have to reinstall  everything when upgrading to F7??
But what has changed? It works fine with slightly older kernel.

FC7t2 works fine for me on a Linux hosted VMWareServer. I used the BusLogic SCSI
adapter (LSI adapter does seem to have problems showing disks in FCx).

For SATA disks I've had to pass kernel parameters to the installer on boot. IIRC, it
was "pci=nomsi" for FC6 but I've not tried FC7 directly on physical hardware yet.
