I'm trying to dual-boot CentOS with Windows 7.
My current disk layout are as follow:-
/dev/sda1 - Windows 7 /dev/sda3 - NTFS partition
I created a standard partition for
/boot and that was assigned as
When I create LVM Physical Volume, it automatically creates an Extended Partition (
/dev/sda4) and the LVM Physical Volume (
/dev/sda5) was created under the Extended Partition.
I then created 2 volume group for
Upon complete installation, I'm unable to login to Centos at all. It is stuck at the loading splash screen.
Does this have anything to do with the disk layout? If so, how can I fix this?
Instead of dual-booting it, I installed it as a VM on my Windows Machine. I started off with a blank disk layout, create /boot partition followed by the LVM Physical Volume. It installed fine and was able to boot up normally. I presume the issue was due to the LVM Physical Volume sitting in the Extended Partition that ruined the boot-up. Could be wrong through. Should I mount the extended partition first or something?
