Creating a Physical Volume (PV)
A Physical volume is the first major component of LVM, and can be created from a disk partition or a full disk drive. To create the PV for this configuration, we are going to use the unallocated disk space. With the free disk space selected as shown, hit enter.
The size of the new partition will be the unallocated space on the hard drive. Our test drive is only about 44 GB, and 150 MB of that has been used to create the primary partition for /boot. If you are using a recently purchased PC, your drive’s size would likely be about 250 GB. The installer will automatically show the unallocated free space. Enter
When creating a PV, most distros choose “logical” here. Enter.
That’s it for creating a PV. The next step is to create a Volume Group (VG).
