Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58137
Boot floppy not verified after creation
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:56 EDT
Description of Problem:
If a boot floppy is made during installation ( I did it from CD, TUI ),
it is not verified. If it has some bad sectors, for example, then the
user gets no error report, but later when trying to boot with the
floppy, it will fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
With a broken floppy ( or large amount of bad luck )
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a boot floppy during installation on a broken floppy
The installation continues as if everything is OK.
A message telling that the boot flopy creation failed and an offer
to create another should be displayed.
Marked for consideration for a future release... of course, even if the floppy
is good when you make it, that doesn't mean it will be fine when you try to use
Deferring to future release.
