Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_23_Final_Release_Criteria#bootloader-disk-selection release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


This test case tests the installer's ability not to install a bootloader.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means and pick a language
  2. Enter the Installation Destination spoke and select whichever disks you like as installation targets
  3. Click Full disk summary and bootloader..., select the disk currently set as the bootloader target device, and click Do not install bootloader
  4. Continue with the installation as usual, using as simple a configuration as possible
  5. Boot the system from another bootloader (if you used a test system with a working bootloader configuration) or a live image and verify using dd, ls, efibootmgr etc. that the installer did not install a bootloader

Expected Results

  1. The system should install successfully
  2. Manual verification with dd, efibootmgr etc. should confirm no installation of bootloader code
