Hello,

E.g.:
"Disks with more than 15 partitions are no longer supported!"
Of course preferably show this only to the user if an automatism
can determine if there is such a disk on the particular system.
Perhaps the kernel which runs during installation must run with
libata support enabled so that it cannot see if there is such
a disk on the particular system?

Even if an automatism can determine that there is no such disk,
it doesn't prove that the particular user may not want to set up
his system with more than 15 partitions one one disk so that
the info is of interest for any user.

What is bad here is that showing info about "partitions"
to any user may cause confusion for many normal usres :-(


Kind Regards
Johannes Meixner
