Re: [PLUG] LVM on the raw disk (was Re: Best tool to image a dynamic disk?)

This is what I normally do. I rarely use traditional installers since the systems I build most are kept as base VM's or images.

That said, when necessary I prep with a Live CD and then do the install. With Ubuntu variants you don't have to reboot to start an install.

Also, with Ubuntu server, you can escape to get a shell to do prep work.

OK, but if the installer wants to make you, how do you get around that?
I'm specifically thinking of the Ubuntu and Mint installers,

Boot from something else and do the partitioning beforehand. The
installer will show you what's there and allow you to assign it to mount
points. You can use System Rescue CD or even the Ubuntu/Mint live
