Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_22_Beta_Release_Criteria#guided-partitioning release criterion.

Description

This test case tests the installer's ability to use the anaconda recommended partition defaults with disk containing enough free space, but also other partitions.

Got space?
This test requires enough free space for a new system installation. Unless you have a spare unused disk, you may be required to reinstall your system leaving enough free space for the installer to work with.

Setup

  1. Start with a disk containing some partition(s) and enough free space to install Fedora

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means
  2. Select the appropriate disk
    • As in the text mode, you should choose option of using the free space for the Autopartitioning Options
  3. Make sure your disk is not set to be encrypted
  4. Continue installation with choosing all provided defaults,
  5. complete the install

Expected Results

  1. The system should install successfully
  2. After install, the system initiates boot properly
  3. The existing partitions were not modified, the system is installed only into the previously free space
