I was able to complete and boot an install with / as xfs using TC3. No apparent problems.

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-12-18 02:31:11 UTC
Note that, per the dupe, this bug is broader than stated: apparently you cannot change the type of a newly created partition in custom partitioning in TC2.

Hi Adam,I have downloaded TC3 just now  and tested,the bug seems to be fixed already.
