I've done several installs of Fedora C1, and had a variety of experiences: some went very smoothly, and some had great problems.

Now I've tried a C2 installation (on a dual-boot laptop on which Lycoris installed very smoothly), and all went badly - the dreaded couldn't read from media error. I tried GUI and text installs, and installs with mem=64M, nodma and noprobe settings, all with the same result.

Does anyone have any additional clues?

When is redhat going to fix anaconda so this doesn't happen?
