Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2011-09-28 02:39:50 UTC
Just as a happy added bonus while we're establishing the extent to which EFI on F16 is screwed, this is what happens if you try and upgrade a (working) F15 / EFI system to F16 and select 'write new bootloader configuration' (the default). It crashes immediately on hitting 'Next'.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2011-09-28 02:40:19 UTC
worth considering for blocker status.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2011-09-28 02:41:19 UTC
oddly, I see a similar error in the log of a straight-through F16 / EFI install, but no crash. (such an install doesn't boot, but anaconda doesn't crash).

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2011-09-29 09:44:38 UTC
discussed at 2011-09-28 go/no-go meeting, acting as a blocker review. agreed the likely number of people wanting to upgrade f15 efi installs to f16 beta is just too small to consider this a blocker, but we will likely take it as a final blocker, so proposing there.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2011-09-29 09:51:12 UTC
it was mentioned on #anaconda that this is likely due to some difference in how step transition gets called between fresh install and upgrade, or smth like that. some specific function was mentioned, but i forget the name.

Hi Adam, can you please try http://akozumpl.fedorapeople.org/bz741817.img and see if the updates image fixes this problem?

Discussed in the 2011-09-30 blocker bug review meeting. Rejected as a blocker bug for Fedora 16 final because it doesn't hit any of the release criteria.

However, this would likely hit any ks installation w/ interactive package selection and can't be fixed post-release. Therefore, accepted as NTH for Fedora 16 final.

Whoops, wrong tab. Ignore my last comment.

Discussed in the 2011-09-30 blocker bug review meeting. Accepted as a Fedora 16 final blocker as it violates the following final release criterion [1]:

The installer must boot and run on systems using EFI other than Apple Macs

Comment 11 Adam Williamson 2011-10-21 06:39:16 UTC
confirmed fixed in Final TC2: i can successfully upgrade an EFI install of F15 to F16. yay.
