Description of problem:
After successful install of base system using Fedora-20-x86_64-netinst.iso successive boots fail to bring up iSCSI device from initramfs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install: Use static IP configuration
2. Install: Add and use iSCSI device for root partition
Dracut hangs out and complains on invalid kernel option
Normal boot to multiuser.
Providing correct static configuration eg.
is enough to end valid Dracut's complaint.
However to actually be able to configure NIC and establish iSCSI connection I've also needed to remove another kernel option:
Please attach the logs from /tmp/*log as individual text/plain attachments.
We've just fixed the issue in rhel7-branch, I pushed the patch to master branch.
I also prepared updates image with the patch for F20, you can check it by adding
installer boot option.
If the problem persists with the updates image, please check if (additinally to using updates image) removing the "ifname=p2p1:08:00:27:5c:ef:d8" kernel option fixes the issue, and attach the logs requested in comment #1. Thank you.
The rhel bug is bug #1103571 for the reference.

Complete console log showing offending:
dracut: FATAL: For argument 'ip=::::iscsi-test.dualsoft.net:p2p1:none'\nValue 'none' without static configuration does not make sense
I can confirm that installer with updates.iscsiipaddrX_f20.img generates correct value for kernel option "ip=" and boot just fine.
As for kernel option "ifname=" goes I can not reproduce the error - both old and updated installer produce the base system which boot fine with and without this option.

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
