Bug 503149: Add features to Anaconda to aid installation on Apple computers
------- Additional Comments from Chris Murphy <bugzilla(a)colorremedies.com>
This might need a separate bug report but I'll stick it in here for now.
Consistently I'm finding the partition type GUID is wrong in a number of cases:
The first ext4 partition listed in GPT (whether it's the 2nd partition entry or
the 5th) is thus far always the GUID for "EFI System Partition" GUID
C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B. This is definitely incorrect, it should
be GUID 0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4 "Linux filesystem". The net result
of this bug is that there are two EFI System Partitions on a dual boot system,
one of which is the real EFI System partition, and the other is the partition
mounting as /boot. Probably not a good idea, should be fixed.
Subsequent partitions either ext4, btrfs, or xfs have partition type GUID
EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7 "Microsoft Windows basic data". This was
done for a long time under MBR, using the same partition type hex code as
Windows but linux filesystems have their own GUID which is
0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4. So it's a minor point, but ought to be
"BIOS Boot" has the correct partition type GUID.
"Linux LVM" partitions also have the correct partition type GUID.
Last, all of my comments apply to F16 beta, so the version for this bug should
be changed to 16. Now that I've inundated everyone with multiple comments, I'll
remove the needinfo flag and await comments/questions on next steps.
