Description mattias hellstrom 2008-04-04 11:23:48 EDT
Description of problem: If I by mistake select "remove linux partitions and create default layout" in the disk config in installer it gives a No free space press exit to reboot- dialogue. Fedora 8 gave possibility to go back and fix the problem (remove all partitions and create default layout) Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 9 Beta How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: 1.on a computer currently running windows 2.boot a fedora 9 beta install dvd 3.press next on all screens to get default plausibly good entries Actual results: dead end dialogue after disk config Expected results: warning about no free partitions to install fedora to, please remove some. Additional info: I think f7 and f8 had god behaviour in this case

Hm, my testing here shows the following UI flow: Choose the default of "Remove linux partitions and create default layout" -> Dialog appears with "Could not allocate partitions: Partitioning failed: ... Not enough space left to create partition for /boot" -> Dialog appears with "The following errors occurred with your partitioning: You have not defained a root partition. ... Press 'OK' to choose a different partitioning options." -> Back at partitioning UI Is this not the same thing you are seeing? Are you perhaps doing an interactive kickstart install, which is the only way I see that would cause you to have no choice but to reboot? It would help if you could remember the exact error messages.

I think you are right, I did some tests with and without kickstart, I must have confused the results.
