Fedora installation Error: Unable to Mount Filesystem

Asked By 810 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I am successfully practicing Linux using a live cd of Fedora 11. After getting to know how operating Linux works, I decided to move it to hard disk, so that I can use it as a primary operating system on my personal computer. The configuration of my personal computer is INTEL Pentium iv 3.4 GHz with hyper threading technology and 1 GB of ram and 320 GB of hard disk and NVIDIA graphic card.

The installation every time begins smoothly and runs till completion of copying installation files to the hard disk. After that, I got the following error and everything goes finished without a successful installation.


An error occurred mounting device /dev/sda1 as /:mount

failed: (2,None). This is a fatal error and the install
cannot continue.

Press <Enter> to exit the installer.

Your help is required in this regard.

Fedora installation Error: Unable to Mount Filesystem


Hello Spider,

Recent I have seen your problem in Fedora that you have submitted in this site. I will try my best to solve your problem. This problem shows me that this is an image mounting problem. Please do the following as I say. At first you should create a bootable disk.

Reboot your computer. Now, please open the terminal Network Manager should be enabled. If you not sure about this, Type root rmmod acer_wmi and press enter. Now, please connect wireless network. Now you can install with your normal installation method. To get a new image, please select existing partition. The format should be ext3. Hope this will help you solving this type of problem.

Thank you.
