Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 501341
low informative anaconda message
Last modified: 2009-06-10 09:32:35 EDT
I tried to install fedora live cd on my macbook pro.
On 'partitions screen' anaconda installer ask me to create efi partition, but it already exists. Anaconda installer dialog showed "Please create EFI System Partion". Which i understand as recreating already existing worked efi partition.
Indeed anaconda looking for /boot/efi labeled partition, but it not correctly described in this dialog.
There have been significant changes to the storage code in anaconda since F10 was released. Can you please test with a more recent release and if you are still seeing a problem, post exactly what you are seeing? Something like a screenshot would be very helpful. Thanks.
i cant test last f11-live, because its hungs at boot (bug 501349). screenshots comming...

Last anconda how mutch less informative message:
it say: "you dont have BOOT partition", instead "EFI BOOT".
Your first several screenshots are all from the text interface, but the last screenshot is from the graphical interface. Please attach a screenshot from the graphical interface that shows your partition layout before getting the error about not having a boot partition. Thanks.

This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda. Thanks for the bug report.
