Description Andrew Jones 2011-10-11 05:02:03 EDT
An error message saying the bootloader failed to install is displayed, and then the guest completes installation and is allowed to reboot. However it's not bootable - apparently due to the broken bootloader. I've only seen this with paravirt xen guest installs. fully-virt xen guests install correctly and are bootable afterwards.

Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log, /tmp/syslog, and /tmp/program.log from the end of installation (they're in /var/log/anaconda/ post-install) to this bug report. Thanks.
Comment 2 Andrew Jones 2011-10-11 09:42:53 EDT
Is there a way to break out of a text-only install to a prompt? I can't use F2 on a graphical install, because graphical installs are broken for xenpv guests too (bug 741950). I may be able to mount the disk image after the failed install, but it's not easy due to LVM being used.

^Z ought to work.
Comment 4 Andrew Jones 2011-10-11 10:44:28 EDT
^Z worked, I'm glad to know it. This looks like the interesting stuff, but I scp'ed off the files and will still attach them. 16:40:28,946 INFO program: Running... grub2-set-default Fedora Linux, with Linux 3.1.0-0.rc8.git0.1.fc16.x86_64 16:40:29,035 INFO program: Running... grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg 16:40:30,032 ERR program: Generating grub.cfg ... 16:40:30,083 ERR program: cat: /boot/grub2/video.lst: No such file or directory 16:40:30,086 ERR program: Serial terminal not available on this platform.
