Description Scott Robbins 2011-08-17 20:53:50 UTC
Description of problem:If, during partitioning, one doesn't create a 1-2MB BIOS partition, the following error appears:

You are using a GPT bootdisk on a non-EFI system without a
BIOS boot partition. This may not work, depending on your BIOS's support for booting from GPT disks.

This message is not clear.  It would be more useful to have a message to the effect that one doesn't create said BIOS partition, the odds are that the system will not boot.  

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

How reproducible:

Install rawhide, attempt to create a custom partitioning scheme and neglect to create a BIOS partition.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
