Description of problem:
I use this media to upgrade FC3 -> FC4.
I used this same media successfully to upgrade HP Omnibook laptop. Now it fails in one of my desk top machines. Anaconda suggests that I vould have too little HD space. My FC3 report about 30G free space on my HD.
Consistenly the progress bar indicates that intall image has been 50% transferred, when installation crashes.
The same problem , exactly at the same sopt, occurs also when installing "linux text".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC4 install iso
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load install media, disc 1
2.choose graphical or text installation
3.progress until system reports that it is transferring install image to the HD
Actual Results: Anaconda produces a dump. Installation exits abnormally. System must be booted.
Expected Results: Installer should upgrade the packages.

Anaconda dump from the crash.
Can you verify your media according to the instructions at
I have now checked the media.
It is PASS.
Changed my cd-rom drive and FC4 installation appears to progross as expected.
Looks like a hw issue now.
