How does the bare metal install figure out how to use available HDs during install? What does it do? I have a new machine that has four 1TB SATA HDs. It currently runs Fedora 12 but I;d like to install Proxmox on it. It has the following partitioning: - four partitions, one on each drive, setup in RAID10, with LVM. This holds /home, /opt, /tmp, etc. Space on the physical LVM volume is not fully used up, and logical volumes were being created for the various VMs run on that machine. - two partitions, RAID 1, for / - one partition, ext4/no raid, for /boot - one partition, ext4/no raid, for /swap How will Proxmox end up using the drives if I run the bare-metal installer over this existing setup. Will it ignore existing partitions and redo it according to its desires? If so, how? Will it blow away the existing LVM and thus erase existing VMs?
