I Started "Database FW" installation as follows:
1. Create a VM machine with 80GB HDD(pre-allocated), 3 NICs, 1GB RAM, 1 Processor.
2. Boot the machine with disc labelled "dbfw-installer-disc1-multi-5.0-114.iso
3. On its prompt I then provide OEL 5u5 CD1of5
4. Then it gave error message as follows:
Could not allocate partitions as sprimary partition
Not enough space to create partition /boot
I am shocked that why it is giving this message as the VM machine has full 80GB space. I have even added another 10GB (pre-allocated) disk in the machine but try is in vain.
Any help/clue will be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
I just did a small test with a new empty VM with a 110GB disk and an other test with 100GB. On both setup it could format the disk and start the installation. As soon as it start to copy the rpm's I killed the VM again. Is this issue related to your VM configuration? What kind of bus have you defined for your vmdisk?
I've just defined a 100GB disk SCSI Bus type not pre-allocated. Are you probably using using Bus Type IDE?
