This is to verify that the Anaconda installer starts correctly when booting from netinst.iso (or boot.iso, which is just a different name for the same file).


  1. Prepare your system for booting a netinst.iso image. This may involve writing the image to a USB key, or burning it to an optical disk.

How to test

  1. Boot the system from the prepared optical or USB media.
  2. In the boot menu select the appropriate option to boot the installer.

Expected Results

  1. Graphical boot menu is displayed for users to select install options. Navigating the menu and selecting entries must work. If no option is selected, the installer should load after a reasonable timeout.
  2. System boots into the Anaconda installer.
