Description of problem:
it may be a grub bug  but i tend to think its the way anaconda call grub  in test 2 and test3 i have used linux xfs as my boot cammand on install and set all filesystems to xfs having done multiple installs on different hardware i have consitently had to rebbot the machine while its installing grub.  it just sits ther ewaiting for install to finish.  it partly installs as a reboot without media gives me a basic grub shell where i can enter all the neccesary options to boot the system once booted  grub-install /dev/hde installs grub fine  or i can use rescue mode to install grub  my main test machine has a sata drive with a via sata chipset  the other machine i have tested on is a Dell inspiron 4150 laptop
