Description of problem:
I downloaded FedoraCore3test3 from local mirror and burned it to DVD.
I tested DVD in two machines and it looks like OK. Installer working
and I can split partitions and select packages for installation.
Installer, in last step, format hdd1 as "root(/)" and hdd5 as swap.
hdd1 ext3 19GB
hdd5 swap 1GB
Now, installer begin copying installation image to disk. But in quater
of this operation, progress bar stops. Error: "Can't copy installation
image to disk...." "There is probably not enough free space on disk..."
I can not install fedora. It looks like demaged DVD, but it looks OK -
Anaconda says "TEST: PASSED".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from FC3test3 DVD
2.Select components for installation
3.Wait for installer to copy "install image" to HDD

Actual Results:  Installer con not copy installation image to disk.
HDD is formated, but nothing on it.

Does booting with 'linux ide=nodma' help?
Comment 2 Jakub Kocourek 2004-10-22 12:49:31 EDT
Thank you!

Anaconda working OK with "linux ide=nodma"

Installed system working OK with DMA.

But I don't know why Anaconda doesn't work with DMA enabled?!
