HD installation method does not find iso image
Last modified: 2008-10-01 00:05:50 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing F10-beta, the HD installation method does not find the downloaded iso.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from grub, with isolinux vmlinuz & initrd.img
2. select HD installation method
3. point to correct partition, containing the iso image
Installer message that the selected directory does not contain an installation image.
Downloaded iso needs to be renamed to "install.img" ; this vital information is nowhere to be found.
No, it doesn't need to be renamed. What you need to do is either:
(1) Grab the install.img from within the ISO image or from the download site, and place it into an images/ directory at the same level as your ISO images; or
(2) Boot from the boot.iso.
This is a change from F9, but it is described in the anaconda documentation at:
(I've also just updated that documentation to change stage2.img -> install.img, which was a fairly recent change in anaconda).
