Not sure which forum to post this under (really need to get a bugzilla
Anyways, I have a Pioneer DVD-DL SATA burner here at work where I am the SysAdmin. I have tried both arch's of Felicia and both will not boot from the live CD if the sata dvd drive is plugged in at all. Even if I boot from an IDE dvd drive while the SATA drive is in, it will not boot from the live cd's.
Here is the error:
(initramfs) ata5: SRST failed (errno=-16)
I've tried another SATA dvd drive and same thing, they both work fine, and seem to boot up fine on 9.04alpha Ubuntu and Mandriva 2009. I do not believe that the newer kernel breaks this as other distros seem to work.
Anyways, to get Felicia installed I had to unplug the sata dvd drive and plug in an IDE one. I will update this once it's installed and I can plug the sata back in to see what happens post-installation.
