it repeats the last line a few times.
Any ideas how to fix this? and how do I set Windows as the default boot selection?
Thanks in advance
I had the same problem, I wound up installing Debian to get rid of the message. I would suggest filing a bug against the Anaconda package at bugzilla and see if they have any suggestions. It appears to be extension 4 file system problem. I have F11 (which uses Extension 3 by default) installed on a laptop and it runs just fine. I used the net install disks for both installs by the way.
I realize this isn't much help but it might give an idea on what to look for.
