This is to verify that Anaconda is able to perform installation in a text mode.


  1. Prepare any non-live media for booting the installer (anything except Live.iso)

How to test

  1. Before booting the installer, request a text mode installation by adding inst.text boot option.
  2. Proceed with installation, using default settings where possible and reasonable simple choices where choice is required
  3. Ideally, run QA:Testcase_base_initial_setup and/or QA:Testcase_base_startup for the installed system

Expected Results

  1. The installer's text mode interface is displayed, works properly, and successfully completes installation.
