Fedora 18 PXE Installation, "Nothing Shown in Software SELECTION area"


Hello guys,

I ran into an awkward situation where I had to install fedora via PXE method. After some headache I successfully booted via PXE and the installation area started. However there is an odd problem that I am facing.

In the INSTALLATION SUMMARY area I set the dates, keyboards and custom partition etc. However, in the Software section the "SOFTWARE SELECTION" area is blank and I am not able to select an environment in the "Choose your environment" area.

The installation source "http://192.168.1.100/fedora" is correct as when I enter some other wrong addess it gives me error. And, there is no "!" mark on it.

What seems to be the problem that I get a blank area in the "SOFTWARE SELECTION" area?

Am I doing something wrong?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I urgently need to get this installed. :/

Thanks in advance.

I'd suspect some issue with your sources at ip/fedora. How did you populate that directory?

Can you boot this computer to any other media? Can you remove the hard drive an load remotely?
