@george1421 Ok, F27 still installs and boots fine. When upgrading to F28, it fails to reboot and drops to a shell (:/#).
@george1421 Since none of the fresh install methods were working with F28, I tried F27 to make sure there it still worked properly (to rule out any settings/hardware changes). After getting F27 installed and booted properly, I then attempted to upgrade to F28 using the GUI software manager. This resulted in the same failure of F28 to boot as the fresh install method.
The logs I posted are from a fresh install of F28 on a SATA installed in one of the hot swap bays. And I completely agree on the oddness of this adapter. I can only assume they are trying to getthe most from the advertised 2700MB/s read & 1390MB/s write speeds of these drives, but in an easier to manage platform.
