Bug#301211: hw-detect: loading of ata_piix before ide-generic hides detection of ide cdrom for Dell PowerEdge 750
Version: not sure, the one on d-i businesscard iso fro beginning of march05
I set up the poweredge first with the 2.4 kernel, which work without problem, but left the sata disks in ata-33 modus.
Then I tried to use the 2.6 kernel, but then the installer was unable to find the cdrom afterwards. I guess I could have finished of the installation if I had installed from pxe, but I didn't do that.
Then I Tried to skip the loading of ata_piix when the installer searched for drivers for the CDrom. Everythig went well after that.
After the installation is done, the cdrom needed to have the ide-generic, ide-detect and ide-cd (maybe not all of them - I could chack later) in /etc/modules to be accessible,
The machines I tested this on is now installed, And I cant relly reinstall them, but I have access to them. But they are in production now.
