Bugs at the launching of the fedora 23 workstation installer

Hi, I'm having problems while launching the installation of Fedora 23 Workstation (x64). I downloaded the lastest live ISO available (Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-23-10.iso) and checked the SHA-256. Then, I wrote it to a bootable USB stick on which I booted. If I launch a live session, everything is working well, but if I launch the installer - by selecting "Install Fedora" at the boot or by launching the installer from the live session - about 5 issue pop-up are displayed. I can report the bug or shutdown (the "quit" button of the pop-up doesn't works). So I'm not able to install fedora on my computer (I have tried with several USB sticks and re-downloaded the ISO but the result is the same).

Have you any idea of how to solve the problem?

Thanks for your help.

I can report the bug or shutdown (the "quit" button of the pop-up doesn't works). So I'm not able to install fedora on my computer (I have tried with several USB sticks and re-downloaded the ISO but the result is the same).

I wrote the USB stick (from Windows 10) with Rufus and UnetBootin. I tried tried to install Fedora 22 too but the same issue appears. I also ran a memory test and everyhing is okay with the RAM.

I think the problem comes from my partition table, as it's said in this topic where someone describes a problem similar with mine. I'll try to follow these instructions and I'll update the topic to tell you if it solves the problem or if the issue persists.

When I launch the installer from the command line, this is what the program outputs :

[liveuser@Thomas_KUNTZ_PC ~]$ sudo anaconda

Starting installer, one moment...
anaconda 22.20.13-1 for anaconda bluesky (pre-release) started.
 * installation log files are stored in /tmp during the installation
 * shell is available on TTY2 and in second TMUX pane (ctrl+b, then press 2)
 * if the graphical installation interface fails to start, try again with the
   inst.text bootoption to start text installation
 * when reporting a bug add logs from /tmp as separate text/plain attachments

Bugs at the launching of the fedora 23 workstation installer

Hi, I'm having problems while launching the installation of Fedora 23 Workstation (x64). I downloaded the lastest live ISO available (Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-23-10.iso) and checked the SHA-256. Then, I wrote it to a bootable USB stick on which I booted. If I launch a live session, everything is working well, but if I launch the installer - by selecting "Install Fedora" at the boot or by launching the installer from the live session - 3 issue pop-up are displayed. I can report the bug or shutdown (the "quit" button of the pop-up doesn't works). So I'm not able to install fedora on my computer (I have tried with several USB sticks and re-downloaded the ISO but the result is the same).

I wrote the USB stick (from Windows 10) with Rufus and UnetBootin. I tried tried to install Fedora 22 too but the same issue appears. I also ran a memory test and everyhing is okay with the RAM.

I think the problem comes from my partition table, as it's said in this topic where someone describes a problem similar with mine. I tried, as it was said to do in the topic, to create a new partition table, but I'm not familiar with partition editing and the new partition table I created erased all my data (I had Windows 10 installed and I wanted to install Fedora 23 in dual boot with it). I suppose it has just been erased virtually (a 1 To hard drive can't be entirely erased in about 3 seconds...) but I don't know at all if I'm right and if so, how can I recover my data... I'm actually trying to reover the lost partitions with TestDisk. When I'll try to follow these instructions and have recovered my data, I'll update the topic to tell you if it solves the problem or if the issue persists.

When I launch the installer from the command line, this is what the program outputs :

Bugs at the launching of the fedora 23 workstation installer

The problem is now solved. As it was said i the topic mentioned bellow, there was something wrong with the partition table, even if I don't really know what it was. After having recovered my personal files, I created a GPT partition table (my BIOS boots by default in UEFI mode), I installed a fresh Windows 10 so it created the UEFI partition needed. Then I installed Fedora without any problem. You can see bellow the explanation of the problem I had.
