Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 127646
Hard Drive installation from DVD containing ISO images
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
I use DVD-R media to store in archive ISO images of all Red Hat
distros ( RHL, RHEL, Fedora ).
Some time I`d like to install OS from such DVD disk and I can not use
Hard Drive installation method to install from ISO images located on
DVD-drive. I have to create additional partition on hard drive and
copy ISO images from DVD-disk to this new partition, then install OS
from temporary images.
Is it possible to include DVD-Drive to list of devices showed in HD-
method source list?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from boot Floppy
2. Select Hard Drive method
3. View list of available source drives
No, if you're going to install from DVD media, burn the ISO filesystem
to the media instead of the ISO in a different filesystem. The latter
just leads to far too many user complications (eg, why do you display
my _cd/dvd_ drive for a _hard drive_ installation?)
