Description Arnold Goth 2001-04-13 07:28:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; CS 2000; Windows 98)

Installation detected an error at one of my partitions (?)

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Created free hard drive space on both C: and D: of 10G drive; /boot 
below cylinder 1024, everything else at top of drive.  Used Partition 
2.Re-set BIOS to boot at CD-ROM, inserted Red Hat 7.
3.Used Druid to assign Linux to free spaces created on my Win98 machine by 
Partition Commander.  Installation progressed to X configuration when 
error message appeared.  Dialog box had me save .txt file to A: and sent 
me to Bugzilla.

Actual Results:  Don't have time tonight to try again.

Expected Results:  Will be covering this in class tomorrow at 10am Pacific 
time; can you e-mail me by then?

This bug is a duplicate of bug #16686.  It looks like you didn't format the /
partition.  Right after the Disk Druid screen, there is a screen asking you what
partitions you want to format.  Formatting / is absolutely necessary, so if you
don't do it, the installer with crash later when it tries to copy data to an
unformatted partition.

We have added a lot more error handling code since 7.0 was released, so this
problem should not occur in future versions.
