anaconda Post Install Fails on Intel Mac Mini
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem:
When installing Fedora 8 (64Bit) from the Live Gnome DVD, it fails during the
post install phase.
It is possible that this happens when anaconda is trying to install grub.
The system is a MAC Mini (Intel) 2Ghz Core Duo, 2Gb Ram, 160Gb SATA HDD.
OS/X is not installed on this system. The only O/S is Fedora
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Tried Twice with Fedora 8 (X64). Using Install DVD & Live DVD.
Not yes tried with 32bit release.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Live DVD
2. Click on Install to HDD
3. partition disk to separate /boot & /
After crash, fdisk of HDD looks like this
Device boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 13 102416+ ee EFI GPT
/dev/sda2 13 2102 16777216 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 * 2102 3146 8388608 b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda4 3146 5235 16777216 b W95 FAT32
I did not set the Id etc for /dev/sda1. I set it up in 'Custom Partitions' as a
linux ext3 partition.
