Well what you seemed to be saying is that you were unable to create a
100GB boot partition.
Maybe you need to be more precise about the current disk content /
It seems it already must have a label and partition layout.
If you try installing F16 do you get the same crash.
The disk has two NTFS partitions, placed there by the mfg. Windows 7,
FWIW. The rest of the disk is empty. t has not been partitioned or
formatted, at least as far as Anaconda is concerned. Windows 7 does not
see anything there, for that matter. Actually, I was attempting to
create a 100GB / partition, but I don't believe that the name of the
partition is significant.
What I'm going to try (after I finish re-wiring my solar panel array)
is to start with a 500MB boot partition, that being the default offered
by Anaconda. Perhaps if we get it started, it will play nice. If that
doesn't work, I'll try a Fedora 16 dsk. That worked in a similar
situation on another box.
The person who got stuck with the bug report on Bugzilla (https://
, no additional info) tells
me that I should be able to save the crash to a thumb drive. The box in
question has only WiFi via a dongle, and it seems its too early in the
process for that to be used.
