    Exclamation installation of fedora 26 fails due to partition problems

    hi,

    I would like to configure the installation of fedora 26 but I have some issues. I have 2 disks:

    sdb which is a 120Go SSD disk
    sda, a 1To normal sata disk

    I have got windows installed on the SSD disk.

    I want to put the /home directory in sda (100Go should suffice) and everything else in sdb. so I configured the fedora installer as follow:

    but this configuration seems not be good for fedora : the installer says that "you have to create a new filesystem on the root device"... I don't understand what is it complaining about.

    thank you

    Re: installation of fedora 26 fails due to partition problems

    ok, I found the answer : I had to give a name to the root partition, in addition to mount it as "/"
