HP Intelligent Provisioning formats filesystem without any confirmation

I've tried to use HP Intelligent Provisioning 1.61 to install RHEL7 on my HP DL360p Gen8.
I've selected "Manual" install
Once clicked "Next" installation started - my disc was formatted without any warning, all data and existent Windows installation was erased.

 

Installer must ask for confirmation before formating HDD, otherwise HDD content may be erased by accident.

 

Another interesting question - if  I can use Intelligent Provisioning to install "dual-boot" system, or "dual-boot" system can be installed only using OS vendor installer?

IP cannot be used for 'dual-boot' installations.

 

I'm positive that during the interview process IP displays a warning that continuing will destroy existing data on the drives
