Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55697
Setup Hangs after the installation type is chosen.

Description of Problem:
While installing Redhat 7.1, when i got to the second disk, for some
reason it couldn't mount it. So i had to reboot the computer. In any case,
from then on setup would hang every time after i would select the
installation configuration (Workstation, Server...).
To fix it i had to go into rescue mode and run fdisk to clear out all the
partitions the previous setup created. After this the setup no longer hung.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat 7.1 Standard (The free one, whichever that is.)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Instal as a server and reset the machine when it asks for the second CD.
2. Try to install it again, it hangs (or at least did on my box) after u
choose what kind of installation u want.
I'd guess it has something to do with reading the partition
information after u choose the installation type. But i'm no expert.
Anyways, just though I'd help you guys out.
I was unable to reproduce this behavior. I did an install, and when prompted
for the second cd, I pressed Reset. I rebooted, ran the install again, and was
able to view the partition table and continued the install with no problems.
Resolving as 'worksforme'. I don't know why your machine would have behaved
