Select minimal Desktop or Desktop(You can also select minimal in case of low disk space)
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 protected] 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
