Installation completed successfully with 9GB drive on this server.
Is this with Hampton beta 1 or beta 2? Unless it's with beta 2 or reproduced
with beta 2, this is extremely low priority right now.
It is on both beta1 and beta2.
If you look at tty4 when its formatting, has the partition table been reread?
