    My favourite bugzilla report (still open)

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1170803

    Anaconda scans every disk and flash drive plugged into the system at time of booting a new iso.


    I have 5 disks online and the scan takes around 7 minutes. If you have one or two disks, your scan could be about 90 seconds or less, a not-to-long a wait.

    If I had my three backup drives (-1,0,+1 versions) plugged, I can go away and return after watching a ballgame.(hours)

    The bug is a design decision that needs a workaround.

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1170803

    If I was doing the workaround, I would have anaconda do a quick scan to retrieve the disk-drive-ids (as does "blkid" program.

    in a later spoke, where the one or drive(s) I chose are selected, I would do the detailed scan of those one or two drives.

    So, now I wait 7 minutes, I select my two drives and I proceed. I first remove all external drives to prevent their being scanned.

    Yes, pretty annoying. I have 5 disks in my desktop and anaconda always takes a very long time to scan them.

    I love the suggestion that users can just disconnect drives that won't be used for the install. That'll fix 'er.

    no need to open the case and physically disconnect them either, simply enter BIOS/EFI firmware and disable them for the time being.

    Hi Antikythera

    When I disable the drive(s), and I boot, they do not appear in the bios drive list (I hit F8, before grub appears) and they are not listed. But grub knows about them.

    I will try another experiment to disable the drives, rerun grub-mkconfig to see the results.
