#15 migrate to GPT instead of old-style partitions
Closed None Opened 5 years ago by mattdm.


At the moment we are using MBR partitioning. If we want to use GPT partitioning with these specs [ ​http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/DiscoverablePartitionsSpec/] we need to use GPT partitioning with EFI system partition(ESP).
I think these lines need to be added to kickstart file if we want to have GPT partitioning with ESP.

bootloader --timeout=1 --append="inst.gpt console=tty1 console=ttyS0,115200n8" extlinux

part efi --size 200 --fstype vfat #or should it be --fstype efi

I'm a little confused about efi partition file system type. Because the web page [ ​http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/DiscoverablePartitionsSpec/] specifies that the allowed file system type in the case of ESP is vfat. But the official Red Hat documentation says that the file system type in ks file can also be efi. Not sure what to use.
So if I add the above lines to ks file will the cloud image use GPT with ESP? Team comments and suggestions needed.
