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):
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?
yes, this has solved the problem.. why does this work?
