Installing RHEL 4 Update 5 on Assembled Intel core2 duo

17Jul07

The installation of RHEL4 update 5 hangs during installation process while trying to probe devices. To get out of this problem while installation use the following command line:

linux pci=nommconf all-generic-ide

or

linux pci=conf1 all-generic-ide

Once the installation is complete do not forget to modify grub.conf, else it wont boot up. Modify grub.conf file to pass “pci=nommconf” as additional parameter to kernel.
Example:

title Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (2.6.9-55.ELsmp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-55.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet pci=nommconf
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-55.ELsmp.img
