Re: I was not offered any option to auto-resize, bug #1479405


Hi again,

After some testing I found the problem: I booted the installer via grub2
and the ISO file: 'grub-n-iso', which seems to have confused the
alternatives of the installer. Bug #1479405 affects booting via
'grub-n-iso', while booting from a pendrive made with mkusb brings
'Install alongside with auto-resize'.

Best regards
