Description Matt Domsch 2000-09-21 19:59:19 UTC
Using Red Hat IA-64 09/21/00 CD

Disk Druid put the EFI partition on sda9 which is not bootable, when using
this kickstart script:
zerombr yes
clearpart --all
part /boot/efi --size 100	--ondisk sda --type 6
part /         --size 512	--ondisk sda
part /usr      --size 3072	--ondisk sda
part swap      --size 512	--ondisk sda
part /tmp      --size 256	--ondisk sda
part /var      --size 256	--ondisk sda --grow

Disk Druid automatic partitioning needs to put EFI partitions on a primary
partition.

This should be working as I put in some code to handle this case, will look
into.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2000-11-08 15:28:44 UTC
Does this problem still exist for the latest IA-64 beta?
