=Comment: #0=================================================
Chandru S <> - 
During F12 Alpha installation , it wasn't intentional, but I was unknowingly creating more than 4
primary partitions on the disk. This caused an exception and the only option from here was to save
the report, debug it or exit. I saved the report and the installer exited too.  System needs a
reboot to start the installation again. 

Kernel version 2.6.31-  , F12 Alpha
