When installing OVZ-7 from the 3515 installation ISO image ( https://download.openvz.org/virtuozzo/releases/7.0/x86_64/is o/openvz-iso-7.0.0-3515.iso),
can't go past the "INSTALLATION DESTNATION" step, because no "Local Standard Disks" listed is selectable; CF : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxquyC56EvMLc0tBSkw2Sk9reEk /view?usp=sharing

It used to work when installing form the Beta 3 installation ISO image; CF : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxquyC56EvMLVFNVVG5WbFhwRTg /view?usp=sharing

Only tryed using VirtualBox Version 5.0.26 r108824 on OSX 10.11.6 (15G1004)
Didn't try on bare metal

Is this a known bug ?
Is there a workaround ?

Regards,

Xavier

I may have found a work around :

The OpenVZ installation guide states that some ssd may not be auto detectable by the installer : https://docs.openvz.org/openvz_installation_guide.pdf
and that one can force detection of SSDs (2.1.2. Enabling Forced Detection of SSDs)

Adding "ssd_hack=sda" to the linux line (Press E just after boot when prompted for "Install OpenVZ"), I have been able to check the "cache" radio button next to sda and manually configure the partitioning

Ex : linux /images/pxeboot/vmlinuz inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=openvz-iso-7.0.0-3469.iso quiet ip=dhcp ssd_hack=sdb,sdc
