Bug Description

On a UEFI machine the first partition must be reserved for the UEFI partition. If I use the remaining space of the disk for RAID and put LVM on top of it I cannot create /. I can do the same configuration using a BIOS machine.

Refreshing the page allows me to add logical volumes.

I don’t think this is the issue. Try reducing the size of / to a smaller
size and see what happens. I think this would be a already reported issue
where the size of / is larger than what it’s actually available.

This is still an issue, using a smaller size makes no difference. If I refresh the page I can create new volumes.

I was able to reproduce, this is preventing from adding any logical volume. AFter a forced refresh, I'm able to do so, so this is a JS issue.

To reproduce:

1. Select sda
2. Add a partition and mount it e.g. /boot/efi of 500 megs
3. Add another partition
4. Create a VG
5. Attempt to create a logical volume, you will be unable to.
