Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505174
installing Fedora 11 from SD Card fails in the boot setting screen
Last modified: 2010-06-28 08:52:46 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried to install Fedora 11 (release) using SD-card on ASUS EEE 1000HE. The ISO was installed to the SD using the Live USB creator, and I changed the BIOS to boot from the SD Card. The OS will be install to the internal hard disk.
After booting, it stops to ask a method to continue (hard disk, NFS, URL etc), so I need to manually select "hard disk" and point it to /dev/sdb1, then it continues to the graphical screen.
After creating partitions, the boot section comes and here are few problems:
1. GRUB wrongly selects /dev/sdb as the primary partition to be installed, thats wrong because /dev/sdb is the SD Card which I'm installing from.
2. It gives the message that it cannot mount the ISO 9660 image: "he installer has tried to mount image #1". Clicking Retry doesn't help. Installation is stuck..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 11 Release
Install using only SD Card (I'm using 8GB SD Card using the internal SD Card reader).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the ISO using the liveusb creator tool
2. Boot from SD Card
3. Select hard disk and the partition, create partitions and you'll see it in the boot setting screen
"he installer has tried to mount image #1...."
Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/storage.log to this bug report. Thanks.

Note: The boot was without changing anything in the BIOS (in EEE, you can press ESC to select your boot device).
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
