From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Description of problem: After configuring partitions for installation, clicking "Next" hangs the installer and returns the error: "Checking the size of a partition which hasn't been allocated yet" Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Begin RedHat 8.0 Setup from the CD 2. Configure some free space to be the /, /boot, and swap space partitions 3. Click "Next" Actual Results: THe installer crashed with the error message: "Checking the size of a partition which hasn't been allocated yet" and gave me the option to save the dump to a floppy. Expected Results: The installer should have assigned the partitions I selected and began the installation. Additional info: The installation is taking place on a Sony Vaio laptop with one physical hard drive with two partitions. The first partition has Windows XP on it. I was attempting to delete the second partition and install RedHat 8.0 on it.

I have done numerous installs of this nature and have not seen this issue. Unfortunately I can't fix this issue since I cannot reproduce it.
