Description of problem:
When trying to reinstall a fedora 17 box with fedora 19, this issue is triggered if two (or more) disks are present and at least one of them is an LVM member directly (ie no partitioning involved). In order to successfully reinstall one is required to remove all VGs prior to installation or in the kickstart itself. It could also be that using different volume names during install would also work but we haven't tested.

--- Additional comment from Fedora Update System on 2013-11-29 08:56:09 EST ---
python-blivet-0.23.7-1.fc20, anaconda-20.25.12-1.fc20, pykickstart-1.99.48-1.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Unpartitioned disks with whole-disk formatting are not cleared adequately as part of handling for 'clearpart' command. Fixed on master.
I managed to reproduce the bug after some effort and I can confirm it is fixed as of anaconda-19.31.51-1.el7.
