I had this problem initially as well - if you try dropping down
the size of the RVM metadata partition, and the log partition
you might have more luck - you might also have some luck
if you retry it a few times, after a reboot or something..
It seems to be something to do with having enough free memory -
I'm sure someone else could tell you why.
