Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4600
lilo fails to run if dos partition is not formatted
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
On a fresh install, if you create a dos/win partition and
do not format it, lilo will fail to install.
Lilo needs to read the boot sector from the dos partition being listed
as a possible boot target. This is an installer problem and it will be
fixed in the next release.
