Now I have an even bigger problem.

I have gone thru the netinstall of 9.8.0 at least 5 times. 1st time 
failed for unk reasons, but would not reboot.  2nd time I let the 
partitioner have its way on a 2T drive wiith a separate /home, so it 
gave / 30GB and and about 17 gb to swap, the rest to /home.  That 
rebooted, but 30GB for / is about 100GB too small by the time I move my 
data.  So the next 3 times I've manually given / 500 GB, some swap, and 
the rest as /home. Won't boot, does not even look at the drive, just 
sits there forever with a blinking cursor.
So just how the heck  am I supposed to install stretch on a 2T drive?

Seems like a heck of a good question people...
