Description Jonathan Berry 2007-03-21 01:27:46 UTC
I just installed F7T2 x86_64 and selected to install GRUB to the boot sector of
the partition onto which I was installing the system (/dev/sda7).  I selected
this because I have a multi-boot system and wanted F7T2 to have control of its
own GRUB.  Just like my experience with F7T1, after all the packages were
installed, I got a backtrace from anaconda (see attached).  It appears it failed
when trying to write the bootloader.
