Bug Description

The creation of swap space in partition 6 of SCSI3(0,0,0) (sdb) failed message was displayed during amd 64 quantal desktop installation. sdb represents usb in this system

1. Boot using usb live session on a machine where there is already a quantal installation
2. Start the installer from the live session
3. Perform the side by side installation.
4. The aboe message box will be displayed (screen shot is also attached)

This occurs on the first installation after creating the usb using dd from an i386 precise system.
