Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505057
F11 Installation doesn't recognize DVD source on second DVD Drive
Last modified: 2010-01-20 13:44:22 EST
Description of problem:
If I boot my system from the primary DVD drive (which F11 recognizes as sr1) Anaconda will not recognize that the installation source is present.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot installation DVD in sr1
Installation media could not be found
Installation should proceed
Please attach a screenshot of the messages on tty3 and tty4 to this bug report. Thanks.
I hate to be a pain, but how would I take a screen shot of tty3 or tty4? Is there a log file created that I could attach instead?
Sure, you can grab /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/storage.log. For attaching screenshots, there's always a camera.

From your tty3 screenshot, the kernel thinks the disc is in sr0. Keep in mind that the kernel doesn't guarantee the same device names from reboot to reboot. Try putting the disc in the other drive.
I cannot tell the BIOS of my machine to boot from the other drive. So the solution is to burn two DVDs and have them both inserted??
No, anaconda really should be able to pick up on the install media being on the second CD. From your screenshot, it looks like we were able to detect it on sr0. What's the exact error message you are seeing? Where does anaconda give up?

Anaconda error stating it cannot find installation media
"The Fedora Disc was not found in any of your CDROMs"
Did you do media check?
