I’m trying to install C6.5 on a USB stick (created using Fedora LiveUSB Creator).
The problem is the machine using an Intel ITX board sets the USB stick as a HDD instead of a CDROM. During install, the DVD couldn’t find the installer automatically and I must choose the HDD option for it to proceed to network/timezone/storage setup.
After the storage partitioning, it will throw an error that it is unable to read package metadata. Although there is an option to edit the repo information, there isn’t an option to specify a hard disk.
Switching to console, attempts to mount /dev/sdb as /dev/cdrom or
/mnt/sr0 met with failure because the USB drive is in use.
Previously I used 6.4 and downloaded 6.5 thinking it might just be an issue with 6.4 but both failed at the same point. There doesn’t appear to be anybody else who encounter the same problem on a quick google.
Is this considered a bug with anaconda or is there some kind of workaround such as forcing the system to mount /dev/sdb as cdrom despite already being mounted/busy?
