A complete installation using a LVM on top of a RAID (/dev/md0) device with encrypted partitions included. For guidance on custom partition sizes, please consule the recommended partition sizes in the Fedora 11 Install guide.

How to test

  1. Boot the installer using any available means (boot.iso, PXE, CD or DVD)
  2. At the first disk partitioning screen, select Create custom layout

  4. Select New and create a /boot partition
  5. Select New and swap partition
  6. Select New and create a software RAID members.
  7. Repeat the previous step several times. Ideally, you would want these partitions spread across multiple disks. For the purposes of this test we are not testing true data redundancy, and it's not needed.
  8. When sufficient RAID members have been created, select RAID, and select Create a RAID device
  9. At the Make a RAID Device dialog, make the following changes, then select OK
    1. Select a File System Type as physical volume (LVM)
    2. Select an appropriate RAID level (this test doesn't require a specific level)
    3. Select all created RAID members
    4. Select Encrypt
  10. Select LVM
    1. Select Add to create root logical volume
      1. Choose a mount point '/'
      2. Select OK
    2. Select OK
  11. Click Next and provide a passphrase for any encrypted partitions
  12. Proceed with installation
