A.2.12. reqpart (optional) - Create Required Partitions

Automatically create partitions required by your hardware platform. These include a /boot/efi for x86_64 and Aarch64 systems with UEFI firmware, biosboot for x86_64 systems with BIOS firmware and GPT (GUID Partition Table), and PRePBoot for IBM Power Systems.


This command can not be used together with autopart, because autopart does the same and creates other partitions or logical volumes such as / and swap on top. In contrast with autopart, this command only creates platform-specific partitions and leaves the rest of the drive empty, allowing you to create a custom layout.
reqpart [--add-boot]
Create a separate /boot partition in addition to the platform-specific partition created by the base command.
