It's tested either from the OS or by running a boot disk. We may need to do that if it won't get installed.

Complete the commands in the tutorial Step 6.

There are a few more.

Then proceed with the tutorial steps, try install to the partition you created.

Do not delete the partition you just created or you'll have to do it over!
