LinHES-config: mv_install, erase both msdos and gpt labels for new installs. If a gpt label is present the install will fail due to the usage of extended partitions

  • Status changed from New to Closed

This was caused by the use of extended partitions with a gpt table, which is not supported.
For new installs wipe both msdos and gpt tables, then recreate a msdos type label.
Tested with both msdos, gpt & both gpt/msdos hybrid tables.
