Description Marian Ganisin 2013-05-21 07:51:26 EDT
Description of problem:

In Installation destination section hard drives are represented just by devname like sda or vda. Neither user friendly name nor size of hard drive is present, therefore it may be hard to identify right hard drive.

This can cause unexpected data loss.

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

Actual results:

[ ] 1) vda

[ ] 2) vdb

Expected results:

[ ] 1) Hitachi ... 200 GB (sda)

[ ] 2) Seagate ... 1 TB (sdb)

... or anything what can help to identify hard drive (partitions, physical connection, ...)
