InstallSourceHardDrive

Description

This test is designed to test installing using iso images on a local disk partition.


NOTE: This test requires a local disk partition sized large enough to house at least 4 650MB iso images. For further details please refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4: Installation Guide, sections Preparing for a Hard Drive Installation and Installing from a Hard Drive .


Steps To Reproduce

1. Start the anaconda installer

1. Create a 5G physical disk partition (not LVM) with mount point /iso (NOTE the disk and partition anaconda uses, e.g. /dev/sdb1 as this will come into play in later steps)

1. Proceed with your installation using a minimal package set

1. Boot into your new system and copy all applicable installation disc iso's to your /iso directory.

1. Reboot your system into the installation program using any available method:


  • PXE boot into the installer
  • boot.iso
  • *disc1.iso
  • Copy $TREE/images/pxeboot/* into your /boot and update /etc/grub.conf to boot the installer


1. Select a language

1. Select a keyboard mapping

1. Select hard drive as your installation source

1. Select the disk partition that houses your disc iso images. Note, this was the disk partition created in step#2 above

1. Select auto-partition at the disk partitioning screen

1. Proceed with an all-language @everything installation
