Description Robert Gadsdon 2010-05-25 21:25:20 UTC
I have a dual-boot Fedora x86-64 / WinXP laptop, and the Fedora 13 upgrade failed soon after the 'upgrade' option was selected in the menu.

The problem was that the installer could not recognise the ...ntfs-3g.. entry for WinXP in /etc/fstab.

The fix is to (temporarily) change this entry to ...ntfs... and the install will then proceed OK.
