Description of problem:
During installation of Fedora Core 1, it gets to the stage of
"transfering install image to hard drive", about 75% of the way
through it comes up with the error message:

An error occured transfering the install image to your hard drive. You
are probably out of disk space.

This is my HD layout:

hda1 - /boot - 78MB
hda2 - vfat - 4688MB
hda3 - ntfs - 19096MB
 hda5 - swap - 996MB
 hda6 - / - 14253MB

I boot into resuce mode, mount hda6, and am able to see the img file
it was copying, it's about 50MB. I mount the cdrom, and am able to
copy cdrom/Fedora/base/stage2.img to hda6 without any problems !! (i
assume this is the file it is trying to copy)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Fedora as normal

Actual Results:  when it gets to the stage "transfering install image
to hard drive" it aborts with an error message 75% of the way through

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?
Comment 2 Michael Tibben 2003-11-14 02:09:44 EST
