I was able to complete and boot an install with / as xfs using TC3. No apparent problems.
Note that, per the dupe, this bug is broader than stated: apparently you cannot change the type of a newly created partition in custom partitioning in TC2.
Hi Adam,I have downloaded TC3 just now and tested,the bug seems to be fixed already.
Thanks for confirming.
It's my pleasure.Actually,it's what I should do.
