Comment 2 Tim Flink 2011-09-21 18:59:00 UTC
I hit this while trying to test the update listed in bug 738964 comment 48.

F16 Beta RC1 x86_64 DVD
 - using updates=http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-738964.2.img
VM with 2 virtio disks
 - 8BG with previous fedora install
 - 10GB empty

When I tried to use the full disk autopart option (selecting the 10G empty disk), I got an error saying that there wasn't enough space available on the disk to continue.

Then I went back and attempted to do custom partitioning. Anaconda crashed when I tried to create a 500M /boot partition on the empty disk.

This was due to a bug in the updates image.
