Description Kuehner Joseph 2007-06-06 20:51:36 UTC
Description of problem: 
Install of F 7 via DVD not possible. 
First everything works fine: booting, choice of language, keyboard, select
packages, partitioning
When installer tries to copy image to hard-disk -> crash. Output of "nonsense"
symbols on screen. This is not the known bug related to host protected aerea
since there is no such hpa on my harddisk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F7 DVD
2. Choose language etc. accept default partitioning
3. Observe formating of partitions and crash when image is going to be copied
to hard disk
Actual results:
Installer crash, on screen not intelligible symbols (like in binary files when
you open them with an editor). Cannot install F 7 on my machine

Expected results:
Installer should copy image to harddisk and install selected packages

Additional info: Machine is a MAXDATA Laptop. Fedora Core 6 worked fine.
For unknown reason installer cannot write on hard-disk.

Are the keyboard lights blinking?  Can you change to tty3 and tty4 and see any
error messages?

Comment 2 Kuehner Joseph 2007-06-18 16:20:20 UTC
For the moment I will not retry to install F7. Chances to fail seam to high.
