Hi Roberto,

I've used the same parameters for the installation attempts.

Thanks for checking that, though we or better I was on the wrong track.

I now could reproduce the problem on my 11,2 type G5, too.

The reason is that my `mk-hfs-bootstrap.sh` script relied on language
dependent information. I didn't recognize - nor expect - that this
information is language dependent until I used a different language for
the installation process. Due to that the partition index of the HFS
bootstrap partition couldn't be found when using Italian or e.g. German
as installer language as the used expression doesn't match then.

See [1] for the changes I made to avoid that problem in the future.


Sorry for the inconvenience.
