Bug#230438: FWD: Install Report - Failed CD-ROM install
I'd like to just say that I have also experienced this bug. I am trying to
install on a Compaq ProLiant 1600R, and it has a SmartArray 221 controller.
All the hardware seems to be correctly detected, and all goes well up to the
"Configure and Mount Partitions" step. I just keep getting kicked back to
that step, which doesn't seem to do anything.
I can work around by allowing the installer to automatically partition, but
that wipes out the Compaq configuration partition, which is not my
I was eventually able to install the base system by manually
mounting /dev/ida/disc0/part1 on /target, but encountered lilo/grub problems,
so I reverted to installing from old woody compact floppy discs. :-(
