I tried to add a "--noformat" option to all "part" instructions, but it didn't

Comment 2 Ralf Kleineisel 2007-03-14 16:48:23 UTC
I tried the following, more minimalistic config but got the same error:

part raid.01 --size=128 --ondisk=sda
part raid.02 --size=128 --ondisk=sdb
part raid.11 --size=10240 --ondisk=sda
part raid.12 --size=10240 --ondisk=sdb
part raid.21 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sda
part raid.22 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdb
part swap --size=1024 --ondisk=sda
part swap --size=1024 --ondisk=sdb
raid /boot --level=1 --device=md0 raid.01 raid.02
raid / --level=1 --device=md1 raid.11 raid.12
raid /data --level=1 --device=md2 raid.21 raid.22
