           Summary: F7 release notes still mention old IDE workaround for
                    Sony Vaio
           Product: Fedora Documentation
           Version: devel
          Platform: All
               URL: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Installer
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: medium
          Priority: medium
         Component: release-notes
        AssignedTo: relnotes at fedoraproject.org
        ReportedBy: cra at wpi.edu
         QAContact: kwade at redhat.com

Description of problem:

The text found at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats/Installer
should be changed to use a new libata workaround, or removed completely if there
is no suggested workaround yet (which I believe is the case unfortunately).
ide1=xxx won't work with F7 kernels since they use libata.

Installation Related Issues

Sony VAIO Notebooks

Some Sony VAIO notebook systems may experience problems installing Fedora from
CD-ROM. If this happens, restart the installation process and add the following
option to the boot command line:

pci=off ide1=0x180,0x386 

Installation should proceed normally, and any devices not detected are
configured the first time Fedora is booted.
