This occurred at the end of a kickstart installation on a VM on a Fedora 13 host.

$ sudo virt-install --name f16b --ram 1024 --vnc --cdrom=/data/shared/isos/Fedora-16-Alpha-x86_64-DVD/Fedora-16-Alpha-x86_64-DVD.iso --os-type=linux --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/fedora16b.img,size=30 --vcpus=2

Then on the boot menu I appended the ks= option.

The section of the kickstart profile that defines users and groups is:

# default groups
group --name=data --gid=502
user --name=m8ram --gecos="Bram Mertens" --groups="wheel,data" --password=xxxx --iscrypted --uid=500
user --name=kim --gecos="Kim Hosteaux" --groups="data" --password=xxxx --iscrypted --uid=501
user --name=thor --gecos="thor" --password=xxxx --iscrypted --uid=503
user --name=mockbuild --gecos="mock build user" --password=xxxx --iscrypted --uid=504

where xxxx is the encrypted password.

The same kickstart file was usd successfully to install a Fedora 15 image on the same QEMU hypervisor.

systemd error message at startup

after shutting down the machine with incomplete installation (all packages were installed but this crash occured before finalizing the installation) I started the machine with the same Fedora16 alpha DVD in rescue mode.

These are the error message displayed before the language selection screen is shown.

Rescue mode ends with a message saying: "You don't have any Linux partitions."
Yet the file systems is mounted on /mnt/sysimage.

The install.log ends with:
20:32:30 Installing gnome-backgrounds-3.1.2-1.fc16.noarch
grubby fatal error: unable to find a suitable template
grubby: doing this would leave no kernel entries. Not writing out new config.

I can provide the full install.log and install.log.syslog and the anaconda-tb-yvd9ue log if needed.
