    So I botched a clean install when I improperly deleted a bootcamp partition. This led to me having to rebuild the fusion drive, which I did, except I can not get it partitioned with Macintosh HD.


    I can't boot, only internet recovery. In terminal I typed "diskutil CoreStorage list" and this is what I get (pic attached)



    Update: I ran this in terminal: "diskutil cs createVolume LVGUUIDxxxxxxxx jhfs+ "Macintosh HD" 100%.


    And I can now see the Macintosh partition. It's taking up the entire fusion drive though. Is this correct? I think I'm missing something. The entire drive isn't usually allocated to Macintosh HD if I recall correctly.

    Boot off an install disk or do Internet boot, select Options/Terminal, erase your discs and create a new Fusion Drive. Close Terminal and continue to install a fresh copy of macOS.

    Yes, that is normal. Macintosh HD does take up the entire Fusion Drive. Then reinstall MacOS, then create the Boot Camp partition using Boot Camp Utility.
