This is a dupe for bug 16686.
Could you please give us step by step instructions on how to reproduce this problem?
The system: Dell Optilpex GXM 5166, the existing OS: RedHat 6.2 with / , /var ,/tmp , /boot and swap. I intended to install the Redhat 7.0 with / , /boot,
/usr, /home, /var and swap. During the packages selections the ldap was configured and NIF was enabled.
This error message was showed at the Installing Packages screen. After I clicked OK, the system was shut down and reboot itself. On the next try, I
repeated the same configurations and the installer failed at the same spot with the same error message. Now I am trying to install the system again with
the same partitions but without ldap, NIF and individule Packages selection, so far the installer install the packages without any problems.
Correction: not NIF its NFS, sorry the typo.
Assigning to a developer.
Looks like bug 16686, has a test case however.
Did installing without ldap, NFS, and individual package selection work?
What is the make, model and capacity of the hard drive?
Fixed in internal trees.
