Hi,

I tried to install the fedora 16 security spin onto my fedora 15 box
as a kvm virtual machine, twice, but both times it failed just before
the end. In the second attempt I created a larger disk image so not
that is the problem. The installer suggested that the media is bad but
I checked the sha 256 sum and it was OK. What could go wrong and how
could I fix it?

How big is /boot?
I've tried to reuse an old disk partition scheme with F16 and the
install ran but grub wouldn't load right after I repartitioned and
made /boot 500mb grub installed.

Does it seem like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=754857 ? If so,
you could work around it by increasing the VM's HDD space (KVM's default is 8
GB).

Ignore this. You already ruled it out, sorry.

No, this was. My whole disk was 15G, but having the space on /home and
/usr partition the pure root partition had only 6G, and that was not
enough. I created a 8G root partition, and allocated disk space to the
/home and /usr partitions. Doing so the install was successful, albeit
at the end the installer said that it was resizing some partition on
the fly.
