Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1276494
Anaconda hangs while restoring hardware time and probing storage
Last modified: 2015-10-30 20:15:47 EDT
Description of problem:
At the main hub I get an unrecoverable hang of the installer. Date & Time says Restoring hardware time, and Installation Destination shows probing storage...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always. Tried 3 times. All hang at the same place.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create LiveUSB (done it on F21)
2. Reboot the machine and start LiveUSB
3. Start "install to disk"
Hangs at the first page
This issue seems to have been reported a few times in earlier versions.
etc. The previous bug reports seem to say "fixed" (not sure what was the culprit) or "didn't reproduce" (maybe UEFI related?).
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log as individual text/plain attachments.

How long did you wait? Looks like it is running e2fsck:
15:00:26,007 INFO program: Running... e2fsck -f -p -C 0 /dev/mapper/fedora_hkimura--z820-root
For this particular case, I just waited for 30 seconds and copied the logs.
In previous 3 times, I waited for several minutes before giving up.
Should I take the log again after waiting for, say, 15 minutes?
Ohh, this time I was watching the logs in program.log and found that it is making a progress, albeit super slowly. I just have too large disks on this machine, which will take hours to complete fsck.
Sorry, then this is not a bug... except that it'd be better to show what's going on there.
Probably it's the same request as this:
