A.7.5. reboot (optional) - Reboot After Installation

Reboot after the installation is successfully completed. If you are installing Fedora on IBM System z in command line mode (using Section A.6.2, “cmdline (optional) - Perform Installation in Command Line Mode”), this command is necessary for a fully automated installation.
For other completion methods, see the halt, poweroff, and shutdown Kickstart options.


Use of the reboot command may result in an endless installation loop, depending on the installation media and method.
Attempt to eject the installation media (if installing from a DVD) before rebooting.
Use this option to reboot into the new system using the kexec kernel switching mechanism instead of a full reboot, bypassing the BIOS/Firmware and boot loader.
