Yes, GPT is the default for F16 so it is easier just to go with it. I
have tried the nogpt option and F16 installs OK (as it does without
it). However it still can't boot:
[root at dom0 ~]# sfdisk -d /dev/VM/f16
# partition table of /dev/VM/f16
/dev/VM/f161 : start= 2048, size= 1024000, Id=83, bootable
/dev/VM/f162 : start= 1026048, size= 40916992, Id=8e
/dev/VM/f163 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0
/dev/VM/f164 : start= 0, size= 0, Id= 0
[root at dom0 ~]# pygrub -i /dev/VM/f16
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 691, in ?
chosencfg = run_grub(file, entry, fs)
File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 545, in run_grub
g = Grub(file, fs)
File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 203, in __init__
File "/usr/bin/pygrub", line 402, in read_config
if self.cf.filename is None:
AttributeError: Grub instance has no attribute 'cf'
The error is in the parsing of the grub2 config I believe.
