So I do have disk space for the vm available 40G.

and I want to custom the partitioning in the following way: using LVM with a vol group = vg_root

/ -2GB
/usr - 5GB
/var -2GB
/tmp- 1GB
/opt - 1GB
/home - 2GB
/swap - 4GB

When I try to proceed with this, it gives me error message that the /boot is not assigned and can't be LVM.

My question is, do we always have to provide a /boot parition and it should never be of type lvm ?


Yes, you have to separate /boot partition & it is also a good practice to have swap both out of LVM partitions.
