Unable to customize the partitions when installing

I want to set up my host using only a subset of the space of my HDD and assigning the space left to a special partition, somethin like this :

  • /boot
  • /
  • swap


  • /somethingelsehere

I've tried many different strategies here and nothing works: define my own partition table, let the installer define boot, root and swap and then just add my new partition. Define it as a new partition or assign it to LVM, ...

Can someone help me (an try on a fresh install in a VM for instance)?

For now, the only way I've found is a two steps process:

  • Setup Atomic using the manual partition screen, but using the automatic partition table generation, then resize the LVM volume in order to let some free space
  • When installation is done, I log into CentOS and create the partition using the free space and add it to /etc/fstab

Clearly not user friendly...

A one step configuration should be a better option, using the GUI and/or Kickstart (didn't try it yet)
