Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12139
CD still mounted when asked to remove it
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:27:14 EDT
At end of installation/upgrade process, presented with a screen of
"Remove the bootable medium and press Enter to continue". The CD is
apparently still mounted, and cannot be removed until -after- you've
hit the enter button to reboot -- at which stage you have approximately
ten seconds to reach the other side of the table, squat down, crawl
under, and rescue the CD from the tray before the machine starts to
boot back up.
umounting it would be good!
is this for an english language installation or another language ...?
All four english language screens (TUI install, GUI Install, TUI upgrade, TUI
install) say "Press return to reboot, and remove your medium as the system
I think what she is saying, and what a lot of people on testers-list are
saying, is that there is not enough time to remove the CD after installation,
before the machine reboots. If the CD was already unmounted before it started
the reboot process, you could manually eject it and take it out. This is
especially true if your machine happens to be a long way from your keyboard :-)

And since the file with the actual installer is loopback mounted from the
installed system, it shouldn't be a problem to unmount the source image and give
a chance to eject and remove before hitting okay to reboot.

The Italian text message, re-translated in English, says:
"Press ENTER to reboot the system, and make sure to remove the CDROM or
There isn't any "as the system reboots".
Yes, I had the precise wording wrong. The problem is as Dale says:
the first time I tried, I couldn't get the CD out in time, the second
time the CD drawer started to close as I removed the CD because the
machine was rebooting, (apparently machines close the drawer themselves)
and frightened the life out of me, and the third time I had to get my
husband to press enter whilst I squatted down by the box some distance
from the keyboard ready to capture the CD. Not optimal, no :)
The wording in "Slovenian" also suggests to remove the CD first and then press
