Hi, Karsten Merker <email@example.com> (2017-02-10): > when using the "Guided - use entire disk" option, partman by > default clobbers the boot sector and the area after it (where > u-boot is located) to make sure that there are no remains of old > partition tables.

That seems like a fair approach, feel free to go ahead; thanks. KiBi.
