Description

This test case verifies that installing on a VirtIO storage device works properly. Obviously, this test case can only be performed in a virtual machine.

Setup

  1. Prepare a test system with a working VirtIO storage device of sufficient size for a Fedora install, and a Fedora installation medium.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means
  2. Proceed to the installer's main screen, making sensible choices, and enter the Installation Destination screen
  3. On the Installation Destination screen, select your test VirtIO device as the target disk
  4. Partition as you like, but bugs in partitioning that are not related to the VirtIO device type are outside the scope of this test
  5. Complete the installation process, making sensible selections for all other installer options
  6. Boot the installed system

Expected Results

  1. All installable VirtIO devices are successfully detected by installer and are available for partitioning.
  2. Partitions are created and formatted properly.
  3. Install completes successfully.
  4. System boots successfully recognizing filesystems created on the VirtIO device(s).
