This test case is obsolete
In Fedora 9 and later, boot.iso (aka netinst.iso) replaces the Rescue CD.

Description

This test involves burning the rescuecd iso image to cdrom, and booting into Rescue Mode.

Steps To Reproduce

  1. Burn the rescuecd iso for the product under test (for example the iso file will be named RHEL-5-i386-rescuecd.iso
  2. Boot a system using the burned cdrom image
  3. When prompted with the isolinux menu, simply press to go into rescue mode
  4. Specify a method and location for grabbing stage2 anaconda (e.g. nfs, http, or ftp)
  5. Instruct anaconda to scan your disks for existing installations
  6. Select "OK" to chroot into /mnt/sysimage for your existing installation

Expected Results

  1. By default, the system enters the rescue mode installer (not regular installer)
  2. Anaconda should find stage2 images and proceed to disk scan prompt
  3. Scanning your disk for existing installations must pass
  4. Selecting OK will present you with a shell were you are able to execute chroot /mnt/sysimage /bin/bash without error
