This test confirms that you are able to install a system when booting the installer using only a kernel and initial ramdisk image.

Pxeboot Images Required
This test case requires having pxeboot images made available for a system. For further information on PXE, please see

How to test

  1. Boot test system off the network using the kernel (images/pxeboot/vmlinuz) and initial ramdisk image (images/pxeboot/initrd.img)
  2. When prompted, entry a language and keymap preference
  3. Choose an installation method (HTTP, NFS, hard drive etc...) and provide the requested information so anaconda can locate the installation repository. If selecting a network-based installation method, you may also be prompted to choose a network device and enter network parameters.

Expected Results

  1. Graphical boot menu is displayed for users to select install options. If no option is selected, the installer should load after a reasonable timeout
  2. Installer boots into loader and prompts for language, keymap, and installation source
  3. Installer transitions to anaconda without error
  4. The installer utilizes the package repository at the provided installation source
