Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249576
can't format drive /tmp/sda1 (doesn't exist)
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I created a kickstart file, and revisor package. During the install under qemu
it fails formating /boot The volGroup formats fine. But when it get's to the
/boot (sda1) drive it fails. (saying sda1 is invalid)
I did some digging. At the time of the error message I did a fdisk -l. All
the partitions have been wiped on all the virtual drives. Looks like this is
why it's failing.
How do I debug this? Why does it only format the volGroups ok but then fail on
the normal partitions? Why is the fdisk -l coming up with no partitions?
Any help, please. Thanks.
Does this fail with the original Fedora 7 release?
