Re: [linux-lvm] How can I change my disk type to 0x8e? -> OK! But How Can I change



First of all you want type 8e not 0. That was a mistake I made when i first
set it up. To cahnge a partion type you must use fdisk (eg. fdisk /dev/hda).
Then toggle the partion (use the t command) to type 8e

You mentioned losing data and this being a first time install. You can't take
existing partitions and expect them to work inside an LVM setup. You would
create Physical volumes, Volume groups, and Logical volumes using new/empty
disk partitions and then copy existing data onto new filesystems in the LVM
group.
