Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965592
Text mode does not use user friendly names for hard drives
Last modified: 2013-06-11 23:39:12 EDT
Description of problem:
In Installation destination section hard drives are represented just by devname like sda or vda. Neither user friendly name nor size of hard drive is present, therefore it may be hard to identify right hard drive.
This can cause unexpected data loss.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[ ] 1) vda
[ ] 2) vdb
[ ] 1) Hitachi ... 200 GB (sda)
[ ] 2) Seagate ... 1 TB (sdb)
... or anything what can help to identify hard drive (partitions, physical connection, ...)
Patch posted. Here's an image of how the storage spoke will look with the patch applied:
