[RESOLVED] Kickstart installation how to display "Create Custom Layout" in step Partitioning Type

Post by WookerCN » 2011/07/14 04:25:01

For CentOS 6 kickstart installation, I want to select the hard disk which centos will be install, and I want to create partitions manually.

In my test, if remove the part command from ks.cfg, select hard disk screen will disply but cannot display "Create custom layout" option, if I select disk and press enter key, installation wizard will create partitions automaticly.

How to resolve this problem? thanks.

Section 4 of the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.0#head-710e17fe8ed8c98a1fe4faee4e11e2135df09fff]release notes[/url] states:
[code]The text installer has limited capabilities compared to the GUI installer. Most notably [b]there is no support for configuring partition
layout, storage methods or package selection[/b]. Please refer to the [url=http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Installation_Guide/ch-guimode-x86.html#id4594292]official documentation[/url] for details.[/code]

The release notes are there for a reason. :-o
