Description Chris Murphy 2012-05-01 17:28:10 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no memory test option in the GRUB menu, when booting Live-Desktop or DVD media on EFI computers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora-17-TC2-x86_64-DVD
Fedora-17.TC2-x86_64-Live-Desktop

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot media on EFI enabled computer.
2. Bypass timeout to get to the main menu.

  
Actual results:
Boot, and Verify and Boot options exist. But no memory test.

Expected results:
Should include a memory test.

Comment 1 Chris Murphy 2012-05-01 17:29:40 UTC
Propose as blocker, based on final release criterion #3:
All release media must include a standalone memory test utility. A boot menu option to launch this utility must be present and must work correctly.

Comment 2 Tim Flink 2012-05-01 21:46:37 UTC
Discussed in the 2012-05-01 blocker bug review meeting. Accepted as a Fedora 17 final blocker as it is a conditional violation of the following final release criterion for EFI systems [1]:

All release media must include a standalone memory test utility. A boot menu option to launch this utility must be present and must work correctly.

Comment 3 Tim Flink 2012-05-01 22:41:57 UTC
Changing component to lorax since the grub menu for the installer ISOs is generated there.

Comment 4 Brian Lane 2012-05-02 22:34:26 UTC
We can't do this. memtest86 doesn't work on EFI systems.
