Bug#572215: debian-insaller: Cannot partition an already file system containing HDD

Package: debian-installer
Severity: moderate

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 ?
