NewWorld boot partition given incorrect mount points on manual partitioning
Hi there, running the 12.04 testcases for manual partitioning I've discovered a few problems with how ubiquity handles NewWorld boot partitions.
When I create/add a NewWorld boot partition it is automatically given a mount point. If this is the first partition I've created it is mounted as root, but if root is already taken it is mounted as /home. It is then not possible to unselect the "mounted as" option. I don't think NewWorld boot partitions should have any mount point.
What I found I had to do was create say an ext4 partition with no mount point and then change its type to NewWorld boot partition. Then I would have a NewWorld partition with no mount point. If you can follow that!?!
Another thing that maybe worth a mention is I cannot create a boot partition smaller than 1MB. Traditionally boot partitions are set as 800k by the automatic installers. I don't know if some machines have a problem with larger boot partitions??
I'll try and attach the installer files.
