Description of problem:
I tried to write an image to a 1G flash drive. Even though the image was bigger and the Media Writer showed that the media is too small it started the write process.
When there is no space left following message is shown:
Destination drive is not writable
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to write the image on the media that is too small.
The write process starts even there is not enough space on the media and it ends with unspecific error message.
Don't start the write process if the media is too small.
This is a problem because for ARM images there is no information about how much space will be necessary. I'll have to add some code querying the archive for the final size (if that's even possible) and then fix this issue.
However, it's planned.
Fixed for x86 images. ARM coming at some point in the future.
