Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5613
Graphical installer freezes on RH upgrade when it mounts an ntfs partition
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:38:25 EST
Select 'upgrade' as the installation type from the gtk-based
install, and an error box pops up saying it failed to mount
/dev/hda6 (this is an ntfs partition) due to an invalid
option or something (i assume to the mount command) and this
caused some kind of system error. No more info was
apparent. I've got Rh 6.0 installed on /dev/hda7, but the
install didn't make it past this error. I'm not sure if
this means the other installation methods will freeze too,
but I'm heading back to the text-based install method for
now. The gtk-based install is looking good though guys.

I had the same problem with the text installation.
I only managed to upgrade after I switched the ntfs partition type
I'm sure this is a bug; the installer tries to mount ntfs partitions
as ext2fs filesystems.
