The menuentry lines should include --unrestricted, but I don't see a hook in grub.d for anaconda to be able to configure this.

This is exactly Fedora bug #840204, which is long story with NO progress.
Comment 5 Peter Jones 2014-07-17 10:18:25 EDT
Can you test this with a released RHEL 7 tree?  I don't think this is actually still a bug.
