deliinstall forces mkfs on a hdd with bad blocks - Tom - 01-27-2015 05:34 PM

I have a harddisk with bad blocks. When I install deli(cate) I have to format the harddisk and can't set the parameter, otherwise deliinstall exits.
As a workaround deliinstall did a mkfs, I switched to console with ALT+F2, pressed Enter, umounted /target, did a mkfs -c /dev/hda1, mount /dev/hda1 /target, I switched back to deliinstall with ALT+F1.

Hello Tom.
This is indeed a good idea. The next version of installer will support bad block checking.
