Description Noa Resare 2008-05-08 12:30:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I don't like to burn iso images for each and every fedora release and pre-release I test, when I have a 
coputer that is kind enough to boot from an USB stick.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The anaconda that lives on boot.iso that is a part of Fedora 9-Preview

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. loopback mount boot.iso and copy the contents to your pendrive, rename the isolinux dir to syslinux 
and isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg. Run the syslinux command to make your pendrive bootable.
2. boot from your newly created boot device
3. be forced to download stage2.img over the net, even though it is on the drive in the images dir
Actual results:
Anaconda does not detect the availability of a stage2.img on a pendrive created from a boot.iso file

Expected results:
Seamless boot into graphical mode, or at least the ability to select the correct hard drive and have 
anaconda use stage2.img from there

Additional info:
If i elect to get stage2.img from a hard drive and select my pendrive device it seems to mount correctly,  
because if I enter the correct device but a nonexistent directory I will get another error than the one I 
get entering / or /images

Have you tried this with the final release of F9?
Comment 2 Noa Resare 2008-06-09 04:42:32 EDT
This issue still exists with the final F9 release. I have tested

feff66dde8ca568c23852d6dcd971c95264b7cb4  Fedora-9-x86_64-netinst.iso

and it has the issue described above. 
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-07-24 09:52:17 EDT
I've completely changed around the stage2 finding code, so it's worth trying
again with rawhide and seeing what the status is there.
