Bug#572215: debian-insaller: Cannot partition an already file system containing HDD
Take a harddisk and create a file system (say ext3) on the whole disk.
# mke2fs -j /dev/sdd
# /dev/sdd is entire device, not just one partition!
# Proceed anyway? (y,n) y
Now use this disk to install debian. Under the partitioning menu, you do
not get an option to parition or to intiialize the harddisk. How do I
install debian on this HDD ?
