Description David Levine 2012-10-26 09:23:25 EDT
Description of problem:
"Unknown" partitions only appear on the MANUAL PARTITIONING menu the first time it is entered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  [image size: 743440384] Sep 12 21:34 Fedora-18-Alpha-x86_64-Live-XFCE.iso

How reproducible:
  On system that never had Fedora (or any Linux) installation:
  Boot live image.  Use fdisk to create ext4 partitions and make
  the filesystems.  Set desired / partition as bootable.
  Select Install to Hard Disk, then follow steps below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select INSTALLATION DESTINATION under STORAGE.
2. Select the one local disk (ATA Hitachi HTS72505).  Click CONTINUE.
3. On Installation Options popup,
   select "Let me review & customize the partitioning of the disks anyway".
   Click Continue.
4. Expand "Unknown".
5. FINISH PARTITIONING
6. re-enter MANUAL PARTITIONING

Actual results:
Unknown partitions are no longer listed.

Expected results:
Unknown partitions listed, just as they were on first entry to MANUAL PARTITIONING.


Additional info:
Shutdown/reboot restores the Unknown partitions list (the first time).

The alpha is quite old now.  Can you try one of the latest Beta test composes?  http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/18-Beta-TC6/
Comment 2 David Levine 2012-10-26 16:03:48 EDT
It does appear to be fixed in the Beta.
