Description of problem:
I put a disk to 3.5" drive when installer came to a point of making bootdisk
and it did copied some files, but never finished (I let it hang for about 5
minutes), until I took the disk out of the drive.
At any point installer didn't say as there a is a problem with drive or disk.
Files what where copied to disk:
initrd.img 40960 bytes
Ldlinux.sys 6656 bytes
vmlinuz 1057280 bytes
Actual Results: I got a non-working bootdisk.
Expected Results: Working bootdisk.
what kind of floppy drive do you have attached? Please go to the 4rh virtual
terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4. Are there any odd kernel messages there? If
so, go to VT2 by pressing Alt+F2. Insert a known good DOS formatted floppy and
mcopy /tmp/syslog a:
and attach that file to this bug.
