View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't install 10.04 server on virtual machine using vmware esxi 4

I am struggling to install 10.04 server on our VMWARE ESXi virtual platform.

Everything runs fine up until the partioioning section of the install, I use Guided + LVM but as soon as its finished partitioning the drives I get the following error and the installation does not continue.

"the attempt to mount a file system with type swap ext4 in LVM VG hortname, LV root at / failed."

Any ideas?
