I'm trying to install Fedora 17 beta on my machine with one spinning disk and one SSD using the anaconda partitioning "custom" mode.
This fails with the "you have not created a bootloader stage 1 target device" error which they say here means you need to make a "bios boot" partition as the File system type. (this error page is for Fedora 16 but I think this applies to F17 too):
But Anaconda has no file system type "bios boot" in the menu, so how do you make it? is the only way to run a separate tool like gparted live cd to make the bios boot partition first?
Isn't this a mistake that the anaconda custom mode has no way to make a required partition?
