Subject: Installation procedure fails to make SCSI hard disk bootable.
Linux Bug Report from John F. Bunch (email@example.com)
Hardware: ASUS P/I-P55TP4N motherboard with 16550A UART's and EPP/ECP parallel
port, 100 MHz Pentium CPU, 265 KB pipelined burst cache,
16 MB EDO DRAM (32 MB swap partition).
NCR 53C810 Fast SCSI-2 controller (PCI card), 1.0 GB Seagate
ST31230N SCSI hard disk, Toshiba SCSI CD-ROM XM-5401TA.
Teac 1.44 MB floppy.
Operating system: Linux 2.0.30
Distribution: Debian 1.3.1 for Intel CPU's.
Compiler: Software used as packaged.
After booting from the Rescue disk and installing the distribution
from CD-ROM, the system would not boot from the hard disk.
Procedure to generate bug:
Create a Rescue disk from the official 1.3.1 CD-ROM. Boot from
the Rescue disk, then install from the CD-ROM. During installation,
choose to make the hard disk bootable directly to Linux.
Details follow. The CD-ROM was purchased from Cheap*Bytes.
There is only one hard drive on the system. The system will boot
correctly from a floppy boot disk created during installation.
After booting from floppy and installing the kernal image package
with dselect, the system boots correctly from the hard disk.
I have never booted any operating system other than Linux on my
