Description Lin Liu 2017-08-17 10:39:51 UTC
Description of problem:

The system disk partition type displays as "Microsoft basic data" in RHEL guests on EC2.

[root@ip-172-31-8-133 ~]# fdisk -l
...
#         Start          End    Size  Type            Name
 1         2048         4095      1M  BIOS boot parti
 2         4096     41943006     20G  Microsoft basic


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL7.4

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Start a RHEL7.4 instance on EC2.
2. Connect the instance and check the partition type of the system disk with "sudo fdisk -l" command.

Actual results:
The Partition type is "Microsoft basic data" as default.

Expected results:
The Partition type should be "Linux filesystem".

Additional info:
1. The default partition type is "Microsoft basic data" if using "parted" command to manipulate disk partitions.
   We can see from the ks file "original-ks.cfg" in the instance that we use parted command during building the image, so please change the partition type after manipulating disk partitions or using fdisk to make the partitions.
2. I checked Amazon Linux, the partition type is "Linux filesystem".
