Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_Release_Criteria#guest-on-current-stable-release 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 in the latest stable release.


  1. Prepare a machine with the latest stable release (Fedora 40) installed
  2. Install Package-x-generic-16.pngvirt-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.

How to test

  1. Create a virtual machine and boot the current development release (Fedora 41) in it. 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)
