Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 573707
Attempt to force an extended partition to be primary results in a crash.
Last modified: 2010-03-16 08:15:39 EDT
Problem still exists in Fedora 13 alpha graphic install.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.During installation choose Custom partition layout.
2.Create (per abius) an extended partition.
3.Choose extended partition.
4.Push edit button.
Fedora 11: Installer crash with bug message.
Fedora 12/13: Computer freezes.
Window with partition info to choose "Force primary"
Tested on 2 different types hardware.
When you say the computer freezes on F13, what do you mean? Can you still change ttys (ctrl-alt-f2)? Are the keyboard LEDs blinking? Any other information you can provide?
I managed to reproduce this bug on F11 where ABRT directed me to bug 502092. So it seems to be a duplicate.
