Description Daniel Laczi 2013-02-04 18:55:57 EST
Description of problem:
There is no option to install GRUB2 to a partition in Fedora 18. GRUB2's installation can be unchecked or GRUB2 can be installed to the MBR, but there is no option to install it to a partition. If you already have another bootloader in your MBR, this is actually sad.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda shipped with Fedora 18 DVD 

How reproducible:
Start the installation of Fedora 18 with the DVD. Configure the destination and try to find an option to install GRUB2 to a partition.
Actual results:
I was not able to install GRUB2 to a partition during the installation routine, so I did not install it with anaconda. Later on I installed it via a Live CD and using chroot. Fedora 18 did boot fine, but while I was configuring the new system I discovered that anaconda also missed to generate /etc/default/grub.

Expected results:
There should be an option, that allows you to install GRUB to a partition.

Additional info:
If you do not install GRUB, anaconda does not generate /etc/default/grub.
