thank you for the time and effort!

so I'm afraid there is no solution to keep a partition during a autoinstallation.

when you will rewrite this part of autoinstallation, so i would use this contact to comunicate my wishes for this.

in my mind, it would be good, if there is a possiblity to switch all "automatic" off and all definition are made in the config-file are realize on the installed system. what i special miss, is a documentation - which parameter can be used an what is the exactly meaning of this, which priority has which parameter.

seams like the parameter <create config:type="boolean">false</create> is
ignored now.

if you specify the size correctly, then the partitions keep alive, because they are not formated. At the moment, this is the only way I see. So, add the correct <size> statement for each partition maybe <region> instead of <size> is even better.
Maybe there is a better way but I can't find it and I don't understand the partitioning code in autoyast.

The partitioning code will be rewritten completely and I hope to get rid of the old code until SLES10. We will see.
