Today tried installing F17 x86_64 from DVD and get these errors:

    ERROR: could not insert 'floppy': No such device
    Loading Fedora 17 x86_64 installer...

    dracut Warning: Unable to process initqueue
    dracut Warning: /dev/disk/by-label/Fedorax2017x20x86_64 does not exist
    dracut Warning: /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist

    Dropping to debug shell.


This laptop does not have a 'floppy' device.

Should installing F17 not be as simple as inserting DVD into drive and rebooting?

Is there a workaround to get F17 installed from DVD?
