Install with /boot in LVM

asked 2017-10-06 00:37:05 -0500

Is it possible to install Fedora - either with GUI or Kickstart - with /boot in LVM? I know there are hack to move /boot to LVM after installation like this one, but after seeing how smoothly Ubuntu installer doing that kind of installation, I am wondering whether this can be done in Fedora installation?

Thank you.

Anaconda (Fedora installer) currently doesn't support installing with /boot on LVM. You have to create a separate partition for it.

There are some (old) RFEs in bugzilla asking to support this: Anaconda, LVM
