Re: F10 HD install - anyone successfully done this?



I'd like to report success!

Here's the details of how the system looked. An interesting point is that I was doing this on a remote machine with only a serial console (and SSH) so the kernel and GRUB options all include serial console commands.

ISO used was:
http://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/x86_64/iso/Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso [1]
I used the /home partition as the one to install from. (The other partitions were subsequently reformatted by the Fedora 10 install.)

I followed guidance in this thread as to extracting the initrd.img and vmlinuz files from the ISO in to /home/isolinux/

The filesystem layout I ended up with, which worked, looked as follows. Note that my /home partition was /dev/sda7 , which is called (hd0,6) in grub.

The grub /boot/grub/grub.conf was as follows (actually it had other "title" sections as well, but I only used the one given below:
# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
serial --unit=0 --speed=57600
terminal --timeout=5 serial console

default=0
timeout=5
