THIS ONLY WORKS ON CD-ROM, not VIA USB
Installing the FreePBX Distro 7 has been a NIGHTMARE for me..., but I got through all the setup parts finally!
Issue 1) Can't install on Adaptec 6405e because the raid partitions show up as removable drive's.
- I couldn't even send in logs, and had to find the answer on how to myself
- I opened a ticket and it was closed as "Third Party Issue" AKA: We don't care if our distro works on Adaptec Raid Cards. (Thanks)
- This was a nightmare, I tried installing on other systems and making a CloneZilla backup, but it just would get stuck booting
Issue 2) I hate LVM and don't want to use it
- Was basically given the run around on this one, got a little P.O. in the end
Resolution for Issue 1 and 2 are the same:
Comment out the following in the base.ks kickstart file in the ISO.
Finally got it loaded and wanted to use "grub2-reboot 'parted magic'" so I could do backups via CloneZilla (a big part of why I dont like LVM is backing it up via CloneZilla is much harder, i've never been successfull, but I know its possible)
This took me a few days to figure out..., but you have to remove the symlink in /boot/grub2/grubenv* which is a symlink to /boot/efi/*** even on MBR installs...
I know they wouldn't approve, but I am looking forward to testing MariaDB 10.1 Galera on FreePBX Distro 7!
