Hi Sergey, As I expected, I'm able to mount and examine the disk manually. Even after removing the Tru64 disk from the bus (making the Linux disk into dka / sda) the installer does not recognize it. Is AlphaCore expecting a "PC" style partition mapping? I've always used the BSD disklabels on the Alpha. The only thing of interest I'm seeing on the console are a bunch of complaints about Anaconda using obsolete SG commands. If you are using generic SCSI calls to probe for the partition data, is it possible that is causing the problem? Steve > Steven N.
