QA:Testcase Boot default install
This test case is to test that boot and default repository installation work on a given install-capable Fedora medium, assuming working hardware and no showstopper issues in areas covered by other test cases. Non-install-capable media are covered by other test cases.
- Prepare your test system for booting and installing from an install-capable Fedora image. This may involve writing the image to a USB key, or burning it to an optical disc. If the image you are installing from is a network install image, ensure the system has a working network connection.
How to test
- Boot the system from the prepared optical or USB media.
- In the boot menu select the appropriate option to boot the image.
- Once booted, run the installer (if necessary) and complete an installation using default settings where possible, and making the most simple and obvious choices where any choice is required (if the network connection requires configuration, configure it). In particular, do not adjust the default repository configuration in any way. Ideally, use an empty disk or a disk that can be entirely wiped, to reduce the likelihood of storage issues interfering with the test.
- A boot menu must be displayed for users to select install options. Navigating the menu and selecting entries must work. If no option is selected, the installer (or live environment) must load after a reasonable timeout.
- If the image under test is a dedicated installer image, the default package set must be the intended default for that image.
- An installation using the default install repository for the image under test must reach the package installation stage successfully (failures once package installation begins are likely out of scope for this test case).
- If the image under test is intended to act as a package source, it must be the default repository and installation must in fact use the media as the package source.
