Sorry I am not able to provide a text of the reported exersise as I did not save
any. The above report was for a FC5-test1 ISO set, CD1.
Kindly try to reproduce as mentioned above with a partition-table-less ide-hdd
I am unable to reproduce this with a disk I have wiped the partition table from.
You state that the crash happens very early on - before the graphical stage has
even loaded? It would be very helpful if you can supply the error message or at
least as much as you are able to remember from the install procedure.
Hello, I am very sorry that this is too late a follow up, I need to have
bugzilla mails straight to my Inbox.
As I recall it was sure early on , before stage 2
>Proceed to stage2
Please try again with FC6 and reopen this bug if you are continuing to see the
problem. At that time, we can work on getting the information necessary to
debug what's going on.
