    for create LVM we need to select type 8e.

    Hi nice article. I noticed that you did’t change the partition type to lv i.e. 8e but created a 83 type. I thought we needed to create a 8e type partition to be able to create a physical volume or is this distro specific.

    You did not set the Partition type hex code 8e for the LVM created. This will create issues later
