LiveCD Installer reports 'No root file system'

Bug #67264 reported by Anders on 2006-10-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


just testing the release candidate Ubuntu LiveCD and getting a weird bug:

I go through the steps, then say I manually want to partition my harddrive (as I already partitioned it earlier, installing Windows XP, then when running into bugs 66667 and 66747...

So: On step 5, 'Prepare mount points', I select my ext3 partition (sda2) as /, then select my swap partition (sda3) as swap and select my Windows ntfp partiion (sda1) as /media/windows and a FAT32 partition I intend to use for common files to /media/windows-shared

When I click Forward, an exclamation mark pops up in the left bottom corner with the error message 'No root file system'.

I have clearly selected sda2 as / hence this must be a bug? The error message appears regardless of whether I select 'reformat' or not.

Ok, I take the risk of considering this a duplicate of 67130, (frankly mostly based on symptoms), and confirming base on duplicate and semson comments.
