Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 827138
no information about platform-specific boot partition requirements
Last modified: 2013-07-29 13:46:14 EDT
Description of problem:
The install guide appears to contain no information in the partitioning section about the various platform-specific partitioning requirements:
GPT boot disk on BIOS needs 1MB BIOS Boot partition
EFI boot disk needs 50-200MB EFI System partition
PPC needs one of HFS+ /boot/efi, Apple Bootstrap, or PReP
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It would be useful to provide descriptions of these requirements to ease the requirement for explanations in the installer itself.
Thanks for this, David.
The BIOS Boot requirement was already added to the Advice on Partitions list  as the outcome of bug 704244. It stated two other conditions besides GPT that such a partition would be required, so I believe it should suffice. Let me know if you think it's not clear enough though.
I've documented the other two items in a new list item in Advice on Partitions (see http://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/docs/install-guide.git/commit/?id=7965709818160ccc327be6bad38e3691146d4538)
