Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 962086
cannot skip install of bootloader
Last modified: 2013-07-05 14:12:42 EDT
Description of problem: There isn't any way to skip installation of bootloader.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot Fedora-19-Beta-TC4-i386-netinst.iso from CD
2. Select drives; click "Full disk summary and bootloader"
3. Highlight drive with existing bootloader (green check mark)
Actual results: Button remains "Set as boot device" instead of changing to "Do not install bootloader". Presumably this means that the existing bootloader will be replaced; I cannot afford to verify that.
Expected results: When selecting the drive which has existing bootloader (in the "Full disk summary and bootloader" dialog) then the buttom "Set as boot device" should change to "Do not install bootloader", and the green check mark should be erased, and the installer should not install a bootloader, nor make any changes to the existing bootloader
Additional info: This worked correctly in TC2.

/tmp/storage.log from installer
Here is the storage.log. It is from the same machine and the same initial state, although this session might have included some different choices regarding selection of swap space. In both cases I pushed the hardware reset button before starting the install, so I believe that there were no actual changes to on-disk state.
Works correctly in TC3, too. The button changes to "Do not install bootloader"; clicking it removes the green check mark in the Boot column, and changes the button to "Set as Boot Device". So the regression was between TC3 and TC4.
Works correctly in F19 final
