I had a similar problem with RH7.0. Diskdruid complained that there was no primary partition available. I solved it by deleting/rearanging old partitions. I guess the requirement was that both /boot and / had to be on primary partitions which you can have only 4 on each hard drive. What is exactly the error messages you get from diskdruid?

What are these special parameters for?

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
