Description

A complete installation using the ext4 file system for the root partition.

Setup

  1. Prepare a test system with a working, supported storage device of sufficient size for a Fedora install, and a Fedora installation medium.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means.
  2. Proceed to the installer's main screen, making sensible choices, and enter the Installation Destination screen.
  3. Ensure only the single target device you prepared is selected as the installation target disk.
  4. Ensure the Custom option is selected under Storage Configuration, and complete this screen.
  5. On the MANUAL PARTITIONING screen, delete all existing partitions (if any).
  6. Pick Standard partition from the New mount points will use the following partitioning scheme drop-down
  7. Click the Click here to create them automatically link
  8. Select the root filesystem (/)
  9. Check the File System field. If it is not set to ext4, change it to ext4 and click Update settings
  10. Complete the installation process, making sensible selections for all other installer options.
  11. Boot the installed system.

Expected Results

  1. The expected partition layout should be created on the target device(s).
  2. The install process should complete successfully and the installed system should boot as expected.
