Description of problem:
When writing the iso image there is a media check after the image is written. If one uses a slow medium this could take pretty long time, there should be an option to skip the check. This behaviour would be similar to the installation when one can choose to check the installation media before the actual installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No possibility to skip media check.
Possibility to skip the media check.
The possible solution could be to include a checkbox to skip the check.
You can press cancel at any point of the writing process, including media check. Is that not enough?
Well, that actually did not occur to me, because I didn't want to cancel the "whole process" of media writing. My personal opinion is that to click cancel button is in this case unintuitive because the user does not have to know if it's safe to cancel the check.
If you think it isn't the case feel free to close this bug.
I thought of it and discussed it with my colleagues and we agreed that all of us think of a cancel button as a potentially destructive thing to do and that it's probably highly improbable that user would think of it as a safe way to end the image write process.
I'll add a message saying it's ok to cancel and/or change the color of the cancel button.
