Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_21_Alpha_Release_Criteria#initialization-requirements release criterion.

Description

This case tests whether a direct deployment of a Fedora image works on an ARM platform.

Setup

  1. Make any required changes to the test system's bootloader configuration.

How to test

  1. Download the image you wish to test.
  2. Write it to a form of media bootable on the test system following any instructions given on the appropriate instruction page (e.g. Architectures/ARM/F21/Installation for the currently-pending Fedora release). Usually, this means running a command like xzcat -v <filename>.raw.xz > /dev/<location-of-your-media>
  3. Attach the written medium to the test system and boot it, ensuring the medium takes priority over other boot methods.

Expected Results

  1. The system boots to the initial-setup tool.
