yesterday i tried to install CentOS6 on Server bei Hetzner.de
I noticed that Anaconda Installer is not possible to handle the 3TB
Disks in Server
when u try to Partition them.
U can do only 3 normal partitions
u can do only 3 raid partitions,
the SOLUTION is:
Before U install Centos6 on the new naked server:
a) Start Server in Rescue mode
b) parted /dev/sda
c) mklabel gpt ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
d) print ( look that all is fine? )
e) parted /dev/sdb
f) mklabel gpt ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
g) print ( Answer YES, you will do new disk label )
h) q ( for quit )
Now go back to Hetzner Customer Menu, and activate VNC INSTALL Centos6

Voila! now at the Part of Partitioning u say "CUSTOM LAYOUT" and you
can do your own Layout as you like.
Maybe this helps other ppl too.
