 System unbootable

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2018-10-02 16:18:25 UTC
I already reported this to pjones yesterday, he said he knew what it was and would fix it.

Comment 3 Mikhail 2018-10-06 12:12:04 UTC
Today grub2 was updated to 2.02-62.fc30 version this problem not observed anymore.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2018-10-06 20:20:40 UTC
yep, openQA also confirms this is fixed now (netinst tests failed as they got older grub from previous compose, but other tests passed).

Comment 5 Phil Regier 2019-07-21 20:59:48 UTC
Getting exactly the same error booting the F30 release .iso from imaged to a USB key.
