Comment 2 Greg Martyn 2007-11-10 04:49:53 UTC
I hit cancel to the new device popup a couple times (I have several disks).
Install looked like it finished copying the image to the hard drive, but after
rebooting, my computer simply displayed "GRUB "

Comment 3 Greg Martyn 2007-11-10 05:27:14 UTC
Got it to work by setting selinux to permissive mode before installing.

Comment 4 Tim 2007-11-10 12:19:41 UTC
I also hit cancel, but it crashed at exatly the same time, if not before, on
reboot, I had a grub 24(I think) error. Installing from F8 test 3 then updating
worked, but it was a very messy way to do it.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-11-12 18:50:32 UTC
Greg -- your traceback looks entirely different.  Please file it separately so
that it can be tracked.

Tim -- what did you previously have on your disks?

> Tim -- what did you previously have on your disks?

I had a fully working and booting Kubuntu 7.10 install. 

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2007-11-12 22:30:12 UTC
What was on /dev/sda2?  Can you see what's mounted when the installer starts?

Comment 8 Tim 2007-11-13 15:58:24 UTC
No, it wasnt mounted at the time. On /dev/sda2 was a kubuntu install, afterwards
all that was there was Lost and Found directory, empty.

Comment 9 Gianluca Varisco 2008-03-23 11:24:00 UTC
Hi Tim,

Did you resolved the problem and were you able to install F8? 

Comment 10 Andy Lindeberg 2008-06-03 19:50:22 UTC
Were you able to install F8? And have you run into the same problem with F9?

Comment 11 Tim 2008-06-03 22:05:51 UTC
Sorry I had forgotten about this. 

In the end I installed a Beta and upgraded it to the latest release, I did not
manage to get it to work. 

I have not tried F9, I've gone back to Kubuntu for the time being, I noticed
nothing wrong when I installed it on a VirtualBox however.

Not sure what the error was in the end then :s
