This test is designed to test installing using iso images on a local disk partition.

This test requires a local disk partition sized large enough to house at least 4 650MB iso images. For further details please refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4: Installation Guide, sections Preparing for a Hard Drive Installation and Installing from a Hard Drive .

Steps To Reproduce

  1. Start the anaconda installer
  2. Create a 5G physical disk partition (not LVM) with mount point /iso (NOTE the disk and partition anaconda uses, e.g. /dev/sdb1 as this will come into play in later steps)
  3. Proceed with your installation using a minimal package set
  4. Boot into your new system and copy all applicable installation disc iso's to your /iso directory.
  5. Reboot your system into the installation program using any available method:
    • PXE boot into the installer
    • boot.iso
    • *disc1.iso
    • Copy $TREE/images/pxeboot/* into your /boot and update /etc/grub.conf to boot the installer
  6. Select a language
  7. Select a keyboard mapping
  8. Select hard drive as your installation source
  9. Select the disk partition that houses your disc iso images. Note, this was the disk partition created in step#2 above
  10. Select auto-partition at the disk partitioning screen
  11. Proceed with an all-language @everything installation
