Description Jesse Keating 2009-05-06 18:10:19 EDT
Created attachment 342742 [details] program log I just did an EFI install on rawhide x86_64 from 20090506, and once done My boot loader didn't see any option to boot Fedora, only the existing OS X. I'm attaching anaconda,storage,program log files.

Hrm, I think I had it wrong. I was holding down option so that I could see and choose what to boot from, and I didn't see a Fedora option. But if I don't hold down anything I got Fedora. So maybe I'm just a tad confused on things.
Comment 4 Peter Jones 2009-05-07 16:08:54 EDT
Holding down option will give you a list of devices that appear bootable, but that has nothing to do with the actual boot order. If you select a device that way, it'll try to boot it according to the method for booting from block devices, which will get you MacOS because they implemented it so it'd search HFS+ instead of the EFI System Partition. If you /don't/ hold down option, it'll use the EFI BootDevice variable, which is where we set up booting. So this appears to be working correctly.
