This does not look like DUP issue, moreover it's not mentioned anywhere.
moving to anaconda

Comment 4 David Lehman 2012-04-09 21:46:48 UTC
Please collect the following files from the shell on tty2 after the error has occurred and attach them to this bug report one at a time:

 /tmp/anaconda.log
 /tmp/storage.log
 /tmp/program.log
 /tmp/syslog

You can get to tty2 by pressing ctrl+alt+f2. Thanks.

Are you certain the only difference between the reported case and item 3 above is the size of the drives? Is it possible that the firmware is a different revision?

Comment 6 chenyh6 2012-04-13 01:42:46 UTC
The log files not able to got because the installation not yet finished and the installation stopped at very early beginning.
Thanks.

During install, there is a shell on tty2. You can get there by pressing ctrl+alt+f2. From there you can use scp or other means to copy the logs off to another system.

Comment 8 chenyh6 2012-04-17 02:41:54 UTC
I can see the logs from tty2.But how can I copy the data from there?
I try to mount usb, but does not seem to able to mount it.Any suggestion?
Thanks a lot.

Comment 9 RHEL Program Management 2012-05-03 05:42:17 UTC
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 10 Chris Lumens 2012-05-03 18:29:45 UTC
You can create a new directory under /, mount your USB device (partition and make filesystems if necessary) at that point, and then copy things over there.  Just like you'd do with a regular system.

Comment 11 David Cantrell 2012-07-05 15:26:24 UTC
Closing bug due to lack of requested information.
