Thanks for participating in testing TC1!
I have tried to install the FC16 Alpha TC1 on VMWare virtual
after selecting the hard disk for the portioning getting the error
message as "no usable disk has found". Any clue what I am missing
Hard to say. I think it would help to capture a screenshot of the error
you are seeing. In addition, I recommend saving the anaconda log files.
You can access the logs during an install by changing to tty2
(<ctrl><alt>F2) and saving the /tmp/*log files to another system. With
the screenshot, and the anaconda logs, I believe you have enough
information to file an actionable bug report.
You mentioned VMWare. I don't use VMWare, but others on test@ do. It's
possible that the VMWare storage driver wasn't loaded, or isn't
detecting your storage properly. Perhaps others with more VMWare
experience can offer some feedback.
BTW it's detecting the harddisk and showing it's size also
(20 GB) in
the previous step before throwing the above error message.
Oh, also a small suggestion. For future posts to Fedora mailing lists,
it might be a good idea to post plain-text (non-html) messages .
Plain text messages are more accessible to wider range of email clients.
