Ok i found, this is a problem both from my side and from the installer :-)

I forgot to add an Harddrive on the VM.

Maybe we could add an explicit error message when not harddrive is found.

The screenshots were good for clearly identifying the situation.
It is evident that the error you hit is not routine: every single Classic install goes that way.

Theoretically, perhaps yes. Could this message happen for other reasons? If so, could the Installer work out what was the reason?
Given that the root cause looks to be in the VM setup, I do not think it is worth it. The message caused you to wonder why; and you found out why.

I am CC'ing the Installer maintainers in case they can do something about your suggestion, but closing this anyway. You can re-open it if you want to, and we will assign it to them as an enhancement.

i would not close it but let it as an enhancement as i gave an idea of enhancement.


Resolution: INVALID => (none)
Severity: normal => enhancement

Being for installer, it must be for next release.

Comment 7 Nicolas Lécureuil 2024-02-05 14:59:08 CET
yes and no :-) 

i would continue to add fixes on current installer, so IF we do a new mageia 9 ( 9.1, etc ) it could use the fixes :-)
