Description of problem: When installing using Guided partitioning path to a GPT disk containing 2 or more partitions, and at least one of them will be preserved, the installer refuses to proceed telling the user a biosboot partition is required.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F20 beta TC5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Existing GPT disk with 2+ partitions that are not a BIOS boot partition.
2. Guided partitioning, Installation Options: "I want more space"; continue
3. In Reclaim Disk Space, delete one or more partitions, preserving at least one; click Reclaim Space button.
Error, requires user to use Manual Partitioning to create a biosboot partition.
To create the required partition for me.

Could you give this a try (against TC5)?
It moves the bootloader execute back the way it was.
It also fixes reusing an existing /boot/efi in autopart.
