RE: problems with unpartitioned harddrives and automatic partitioning



Don't forget the "zerombr" kickstart directive is also available.

 zerombr (optional)

    If zerombr is specified, and yes is its sole argument, any invalid partition tables found on disks are initialized. This destroys all of the contents of disks with invalid partition tables. This command should be in the following format:

    zerombr yes

    No other format is effective.

:-) Actually I do --all before --initlabel too, the example I've posted
in my original e-mail was already from modified ks.cfg where I've tried
to swap options. It didn't help through. :-(

Well, I know about %pre but I thought here at kickstart maillist there
are people who knows anaconda source and can maybe look into the code
and try to fix this issue.
