This test boots any available installation method (CDROM, DVD, or network) and requests a rescue install. For details on booting into rescue mode please refer to the Install Guide .

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available non-Live means (anything except Live.iso)
  2. At the initial screen, select the Troubleshooting menu and then the option labelled Rescue a Fedora system
  3. When prompted, direct anaconda to scan your disks for existing installations
  4. Select OK to chroot into /mnt/sysimage for your existing installation
  5. Accept the default shell menu entry to get an interactive shell

Expected Results

  1. Anaconda should start and proceed to disk scan prompt
  2. Scanning your disk for existing installations should not result in a failure
  3. Selecting OK will present you with a shell where you are able to see the previous installation mounted under /mnt/sysimage
  4. Anaconda should be able to mount (read-write and read-only) LVM, encrypted, and RAID (BIOS, hardware, and software) installations
  5. Additionally, you may be able to execute chroot /mnt/sysimage /bin/bash without error
