Brief description of the problem
Total noob here with a problem installing.
If the Automatic partition scheme is selected during the install phase, the disk is partitioned using LVM.
When attempting to set the partitions scheme manually, I can select btrfs, but I couldn’t find a mount point that would actually cause the system to then boot normally.
Can someone provide the actual detailed settings for a manual partition scheme that works? I could not find a guide detailing that part.
The software is to be installed on a HP thin client on a 16GB flash module.
Gotta say, the first impression is not great, as it appears to be a bit of a hassle to even get the thing to work.
Also, I have a couple of drives in an external enclosure which are formatted ext4 and NTFS (previously used on OMV) and which I do not want to format again.
It is not clear exactly whether they will work as is, or I have to wipe and re-format them, as this would be a deal breaker.
Thanks in advance for the help and sorry for my first post being a “need help” post.
Gotta say, I love the interface and options
