Note:

After installation create volume group on lvm partition(physical volume )and give it any name.

For pvcreate use the following command

pvcreate partition name e.g pvcreate /dev/sdb2

Physical volume "/dev/sdb2" successfully created

to check physical volume name rum command “pvdisplay”

Once you create the physical volume, you can create the volume group (VG) from these physical volumes (PV).

vgcreate  vg_name  pv_name     e.g. vgcreate  vg_group  /dev/sdb2

  Volume  group "vg_group" successfully created

to check vg created name  run command “vgdisplay”

./install.sh email=your@email.com kernel=kvm lvg=VOLUME_GROUP_NAME

you should give lvg = vg name created by you

Also make sure that visualization should be enabled in BIOS

Enjoy
