Unable to upgrade from FC10

First of all, thanks for your attention. Second: I've a "bit" problem upgrading Fedora. This aventure starts on FC11 and stays unsolved. I've posted the problem on the Bugzilla page, 'cause this issue appears even all on another distributions, like Ubuntu.

I'll try to explain briefly: Some years ago, I installed FC10 on my computer (Packard Bell imedia 6050), and no problem appeared. Even all, packagekit upgrades the kernel 'till version 2.6.27.41 with no problem.

Some months later, appeared FC11, and a bit later, FC12, so I decided to upgrade to FC12 ASAP to keep the system updated. So, I download the DVD, reboot the system, Anaconda prepares the installation, and here becomes the problem: No HD to install to!

Then, I waited for a while (some versions more) to see if the problem gets solved, (I'm not a linux expert) and I see that this issue remains on the rest of the versions, so I report the problem to Bugzilla, telling that the problem appears on FC11, stills active on FC14, and so on.

When I discover the way to complete the info that the guys from redhat needs to improve Fedora, I add them to the bugzilla report, and wait for any help. (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755554 for further information)

Some time later, redhat lauches kernel 3.3.0.4 for FC16, so I wait to FC17 to be sure that the kernel installed is OK: No HD to install to

Currently, I don't know what to do (logically, I can't to buy a new computer, and I can't stay many more time on FC10!), nor if this issue is well known, is a Kernel problem or if can be solved with an specific driver (none found for the motherboard/SCSI/SATA/RAID for this machine for linux/fedora specific).

Thanks for your patiente and attention.

Unable to upgrade from FC10

First of all, thanks for your attention. Second: I've a "bit" problem upgrading Fedora. This aventure starts on FC11 and stays unsolved. I've posted the problem on the Bugzilla page, 'cause this issue appears even all on another distributions, like Ubuntu.

I'll try to explain briefly: Some years ago, I installed FC10 on my computer (Packard Bell imedia 6050), and no problem appeared. Even all, packagekit upgrades the kernel 'till version 2.6.27.41 with no problem.

Some months later, appeared FC11, and a bit later, FC12, so I decided to upgrade to FC12 ASAP to keep the system updated. So, I download the DVD, reboot the system, Anaconda prepares the installation, and here becomes the problem: No HD to install to!

Then, I waited for a while (some versions more) to see if the problem gets solved, (I'm not a linux expert) and I see that this issue remains on the rest of the versions, so I report the problem to Bugzilla, telling that the problem appears on FC11, stills active on FC14, and so on.

When I discover the way to complete the info that the guys from redhat needs to improve Fedora, I add them to the bugzilla report, and wait for any help. (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755554 for further information)

Some time later, redhat lauches kernel 3.3.0.4 for FC16, so I wait to FC17 to be sure that the kernel installed is OK: No HD to install to

Currently, I don't know what to do (logically, I can't to buy a new computer, and I can't stay many more time on FC10!), nor if this issue is well known, is a Kernel problem or if can be solved with an specific driver (none found for the motherboard/SCSI/SATA/RAID for this machine for linux/fedora specific).

Thanks for your patiente and attention.

Unable to upgrade from FC10

First of all, thanks for your attention. Second: I've a "bit" problem upgrading Fedora. This aventure starts on FC11 and stays unsolved. I've posted the problem on the Bugzilla page, 'cause this issue appears even all on another distributions, like Ubuntu.

I'll try to explain briefly: Some years ago, I installed FC10 on my computer (Packard Bell imedia 6050), and no problem appeared. Even all, packagekit upgrades the kernel 'till version 2.6.27.41 with no problem.

Some months later, appeared FC11, and a bit later, FC12, so I decided to upgrade to FC12 ASAP to keep the system updated. So, I download the DVD, reboot the system, Anaconda prepares the installation, and here becomes the problem: No HD to install to!

Then, I waited for a while (some versions more) to see if the problem gets solved, (I'm not a linux expert) and I see that this issue remains on the rest of the versions, so I report the problem to Bugzilla, telling that the problem appears on FC11, stills active on FC14, and so on.

When I discover the way to complete the info that the guys from redhat needs to improve Fedora, I add them to the bugzilla report, and wait for any help. (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755554 for further information)

Some time later, redhat lauches kernel 3.3.0.4 for FC16, so I wait to FC17 to be sure that the kernel installed is OK: No HD to install to

Currently, I don't know what to do (logically, I can't to buy a new computer, and I can't stay many more time on FC10!), nor if this issue is well known, is a Kernel problem or if can be solved with an specific driver (none found for the motherboard/SCSI/SATA/RAID for this machine for linux/fedora specific).

Thanks for your patiente and attention.
