Language English
Keyboard Norwegian
Did the media check
I dont remember selecting disk. I have only sda
deleted old sda1 (windows vista 40GB partition)
deleted old sda2 (old F12 /boot)
Created sda1 500MB /boot ext4
Created sda2 4096MB swap
Created sda5 / to use rest of available space. I may have forgotten to
check encrypt first and reedited to add it
continued, and after creating file systems anaconda crashed.

Second time around the partitions were already there. I changed sda5 to
unencrypted. Installation succeeded.

Could be the deleting of existing partitions, could be editing of file
system options... Second time I knew what I wanted and just did
everything right at once.
