Description Deji Akingunola 2007-01-26 05:01:51 UTC
Description of problem:
I was responding to the call to QA the F7-Test1 testing tree; i used pungi to
create a DVD iso and store it on an external usb drive. After booting, I
selected Hard-drive method for install and chose the drive/partition that
contains the ISO, and anaconda complained it cannot find the image. If I press
'F2' and try to select the drive/partition from there, anaconda complained it
cannot mount the disk. If I try to select any other partition after the first
try (either internal of external drives), I get the dreaded 'blue screen of death'. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):anaconda-

Comment 3 Deji Akingunola 2007-01-29 22:39:01 UTC
Sorry, the first line is

<5> sd 5:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sdc

Comment 4 Scott Talbot 2007-02-12 05:10:29 UTC
Note the lines <3> and <6> above.  They are (I think) telling that a FAT
partition is wanted.  I was able to install F7T1 today by putting the .iso on a
vfat partition.

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2007-02-13 16:55:53 UTC
The ext3 filesystem module is not being loaded early enough, so the loader is
unable to mount any ext3 partitions.  This should be fixed for test 2.
