Harddrive install failure (pre F7-test1)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:54 EST
Description of problem:
I was responding to the call to QA the F7-Test1 testing tree; i used pungi to
create a DVD iso and store it on an external usb drive. After booting, I
selected Hard-drive method for install and chose the drive/partition that
contains the ISO, and anaconda complained it cannot find the image. If I press
'F2' and try to select the drive/partition from there, anaconda complained it
cannot mount the disk. If I try to select any other partition after the first
try (either internal of external drives), I get the dreaded 'blue screen of death'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):anaconda-220.127.116.11-1
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
What are the last lines from tty3?

> What are the last lines from tty3?
<5> sd 5:0:0O: Attached scsi disk sdc
<3> FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
<6> VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sdc1
NOTE: I recreated the DVD iso (using pungi) and boot with pxeboot images from
20070127 rawhide tree (anaconda-18.104.22.168-2)
Sorry, the first line is
<5> sd 5:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sdc
Note the lines <3> and <6> above. They are (I think) telling that a FAT
partition is wanted. I was able to install F7T1 today by putting the .iso on a
The ext3 filesystem module is not being loaded early enough, so the loader is
unable to mount any ext3 partitions. This should be fixed for test 2.
