315If you still have an AIX partition layout on your system, you will get the
316following error message:

318
319<pre caption="Error message from fdisk">
320 There is a valid AIX label on this disk.
321 Unfortunately Linux cannot handle these
322 disks at the moment. Nevertheless some
323 advice:
324 1. fdisk will destroy its contents on write.
325 2. Be sure that this disk is NOT a still vital
326 part of a volume group. (Otherwise you may
327 erase the other disks as well, if unmirrored.)
328 3. Before deleting this physical volume be sure
329 to remove the disk logically from your AIX
330 machine. (Otherwise you become an AIXpert).
