Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_41_Beta_Release_Criteria#self-hosting-virtualization 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 ensures the development release boots as a KVM guest run in the same release.


  1. Prepare a machine with the current development release (Fedora 41) installed
  2. Install virt-manager (or other tool to control KVM virtual machines)
  3. If you want to test your guest system using UEFI, you need to set it up first.( Note: IoT testing requires UEFI.)

How to test

  1. Create a virtual machine and boot the current development release in it (use boot.iso, PXE or DVD.iso of Fedora 41). This can be accomplished using the virt-install command or by using the graphical utility virt-manager
  2. Hit run to boot the guest from the provided ISO disc
  3. Proceed with normal installation

Expected Results

  1. The installer successfully boots from the ISO image
  2. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual network device(s)
  3. The installer is able to activate and use the virtual storage device(s)
  4. The install completes successfully
  5. The system reboots successfully, recognizing filesystems created on the virt device(s)
