Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_40_Beta_Release_Criteria#guided-partitioning 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 whether the installer can successfully remove some existing storage volumes and automatically partition in the freed-up space using the guided partitioning path, without affecting the retained volumes.


  1. Prepare a test system with a working, supported storage device of sufficient size for a Fedora install, and a Fedora installation medium.
  2. Ensure the target device contains multiple storage volumes, ideally one or more existing OS installations and data partitions.

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. Ensure only the single, blank target device you prepared is selected as the installation target disk.
  4. Ensure the option to let the installer handle partitioning is set, and complete this screen.
  5. When prompted to free up space for the Fedora installation, use the Reclaim space option.
  6. On the Reclaim space screen, choose to delete some existing storage volumes (creating sufficient free space for the installation), but retain some others.
  7. Complete the installation process, making sensible selections for all other installer options.
  8. Boot the installed system.

Expected Results

  1. The storage volumes on the target disk that were chosen for deletion should be deleted.
  2. The storage volumes on the target disk that were not chosen to be deleted should not be deleted.
  3. The expected partition layout should be created on the target device(s).
  4. The install process should complete successfully and the installed system should boot as expected.
