I went to install Fedora Core 8 and right at the end of the installation I got this error.

An error occurred trying to format VolGroup00/LogVol00. This problem is serious, and the install cant not continue.

I search the web and all I could find was that it means a bad HDD. Has anyone else got this error, and how did you fix it?

I'd make sure that your cables are plugged all the way in, that jumpers are set properly, and that you are on the right connector on the cable if it is cable select. If that doesn't fix it, maybe swap in a different hard drive and try that.

SpooF.. Don't know if you found this solution or not.

I believe your error is simply down to the drive mountpoints. There is a similar bug in the mandriva installer.

Looking at it this seems to be the situation (though Anarchy will no doubt come along and enlighten us fully later)

The auto partitioner makes all the partitions, formats and sets mountpoints.. then it either doesn't label /boot properly, or doesn't unmount it cleanly.
