Oracle VM and some Linux operating system installs can fail on some disk partitions (15770848, formerly CR 7142600)

Oracle VM and some Linux operating system installations can fail on some disk partitions because libparted does not handle some disk partitions correctly.

Affected software:

  • Oracle Linux 5.7, 5.8, and 6.1

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.7, 5.8, and 6.1

  • Oracle VM 3.0 and 3.1

  • Releases 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4.4, 1.5, 1.6, and 1.8


Note -  This issue does not affect Oracle Linux 6.2 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2.

Workaround:

Do the following:

  1. Ensure that the disk on which the virtual machine software or operating system will be installed is clean, with no other operating systems installed.

  2. If necessary, use the dd command to clear the disk before installing the operating system.
