Description Kamil Páral 2014-09-30 11:20:26 UTC
Description of problem:
If run some Fedora image with medium consistency check (an option in the boot menu), it starts computing and says "Press [Esc] to abort check.". However, if I do that, I receive:

dracut: FATAL: CD check failed!
dracut: Refusing to continue

See screenshot. You have to do a hard reset, nothing else works.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 21 Workstation Live x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the media with consistency check enabled
2. cancel the check with Esc

Actual results:
the boot gets stuck

Expected results:
the boot continues

This might be tricky to test, nightly composes are created just from fedora+updates repos. It will probably involve creating a custom LiveCD locally.

I have built a custom Live image and everything works - the consistency check passes, it can be canceled (and boot continues), and it stops the boot when I corrupt the image. Thanks for fixing this.
