FAQ
Hello List,

i try to install Centos 6 on a Server with 2x 3TB Disks.
When anaconda is showing up the disk partitioner i cant
do more then 3 "normal Partitions" or more then 3 "Raid Partitions".

Even when u choose that each partition is 200mb, u cant do more then
3 "normal" or "raid" partitions.

is this a bug of anaconda installer?

thanks

marko

    I *think* disk druid (or whatever it's called) is based on fdisk. For
    larger than 2TB partitions, you need parted or gparted. Consider
    a) booting off a rescue disk
    b) using gparted to partition them: note that you *will* need to make
    them gpt, *not* the normal mbr.
    c) make usable partitions for /boot and /.
    d) make larger partitions for whatever else you want.

    The normal goes back to the M$ DOS days, and 2TB is the max, and only four
    primary partitions are allowed. Beyond that, you make an extended
    partition, and make partitions in that.

    I'm sure anaconda use parted and CentOS6 support GPT.
