Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484527
Unable to mount /boot during install.
Last modified: 2009-06-25 13:34:19 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to install to disk from the Live CD I get an error popup indicating it was unable to mount /boot. The error is:
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply
This happens on a Dell Inspiron 8600 Laptop
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 i686 Live CD
Tried 2 times and it occurred both times.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off Live CD
3.Just before it copies image to disk you get the pop up
Got unable to mount /boot error message
No error pop up
Clicking the OK button does not make the pop up go away. It does continue to load image to disk.
After indicating a successful install when I rebooted I got:
mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root
Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log from when you get this error message to this bug report? Your fstab might also be helpful. Thanks.

Tried the install from live CD and this time it worked. However I still got the can't mount /boot message. I have attached the anaconda.log file.
I think this is an interaction with devicekit. I've got a fix pending, although it may or may not make beta.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
