	During the installation, you will be asked about the partition scheme.
	Don’t use LVM partitions. They are not supported by snf-image-creator.

-> Not sure if that applies here.


	When image shrinking is enabled, snf-image-creator will shrink the last
	partition on the disk. If this is a swap partition, it will remove it,
	save enough information to recreate it during image deployment and
	shrink the partition that lays just before that. This will make the
	image smaller which speeds up the deployment process.

	During image deployment, the last partition is enlarged to occupy the
	available space in the VM’s hard disk and a swap partition is added at
	the end if a SWAP image property is present.

-> Maybe a single / partition and a possible swap space at the end ?

part / --fstype ext4 --size=1000 --asprimary --ondisk=sda
part swap --size=128 --asprimary --ondisk=sda --fstype swap
