QA:Testcase partitioning guided shrink
This test case tests whether the installer can successfully resize existing storage volume(s) and automatically partition in the freed-up space using the guided partitioning path.
- Prepare a test system with a working, supported storage device of sufficient size for a Fedora install, and a Fedora installation medium.
- Ensure the target device contains at least one existing storage volume, ideally an existing OS installation.
- Ensure there is enough free space within at least one of the volumes that shrinking the volume will provide enough free space for a Fedora installation.
How to test
- Boot the installer using any available means.
- Proceed to the installer's main screen, making sensible choices, and enter the Installation Destination screen.
- Ensure only the single target device you prepared is selected as the installation target disk.
- Ensure the option to let the installer handle partitioning is set, and complete this screen.
- When prompted to free up space for the Fedora installation, use the Reclaim space option.
- On the Reclaim space screen, choose to resize the existing storage volume, creating sufficient free space for the installation.
- Complete the installation process, making sensible selections for all other installer options.
- Boot the installed system.
- The storage volume on the target disk that was chosen to be resized should now be the chosen size.
- The pre-existing contents of the resized volume should not be disturbed.
- The expected partition layout should be created on the target device(s).
- The install process should complete successfully and the installed system should boot as expected.
