This test cases checks for the basic anaconda functionality


  1. Prepare your test system for booting and installing from an install-capable Fedora image.
    • If testing in a virtual machine, attach the image to the virtual machine as a CD or DVD.
    • If testing optical media on a real machine, burn the image to a CD or DVD, insert it into the system's optical drive, and ensure the system is configured to boot from the optical drive.
    • If testing USB media on a real machine, prepare the USB stick according to the official instructions, using the most prominently-recommended method (currently Fedora Media Writer), and ensure the system is configured to boot from the USB medium.
  2. If the image you are installing from is a network install image, ensure the system has a working network connection.

How to test

  1. Boot the system from the prepared install medium.
  2. In the boot menu select the appropriate option to boot the image.
  3. Once booted, run the installer (if necessary) and complete an installation

Expected Results

  1. A boot menu must be displayed for users to select install options. Navigating the menu and selecting entries must work. If no option is selected, the installer (or live environment) must load after a reasonable timeout.
  2. If the image under test is a dedicated installer image, the default package set must be the intended default for that image.
  3. An installation using the default install repository for the image under test must complete the installation process.


Optionally provide hints for exploratory testing.
