[edit] DVD Install Walkthrough

Note this does not include the time required to download the ISO (1.5 hours here) and burn the ISO to a DVD (10 minutes), nor setting the computer to boot from DVD.

Total elapsed time, including media check, was 45 minutes.

[edit] Syslinux

Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss syslinux.png Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss syslinux2.png

Pick Ïnstall a new system or upgrade an existing system" from the syslinux menu.

  • basic video driver - why would I use this?
  • rescue installed system - okay, this is sensical, although I wouldnt think to use an install DVD for this
  • boot from local drive - better wording?
  • memory test - why is this here?

[edit] Ugly Black Screen

Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss uglyblackscreen.png Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss uglyblackscreen2.png

  • vmlinuz... blah blah.... initrd.img.... blah blah
  • do people need to see this? :(

[edit] Media check

Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss mediacheck1.png

  • Do you want to go ahead, or do you want to test your media?

[edit] Media check - are you sure?

Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss mediacheck2.png

  • Do you really want to media test, or eject? This screen seems a little nonsensical in this order.

[edit] Media check successful

Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss mediacheck4.png Anaconda-f14-dvd-ss mediacheck5.png

  • Just an OK button, nothing else you can do
  • The DVD pops out, which is an annoyance as you have to insert it back in
