Problem occurs in post-installation steps (os-prober/grub2-mkconfig).

RHCS-I (Sat 6) ISO appears to install OK, testing launch-fusor-installer now

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1282599 complicates testing Sat6 ISO.
Comment 3 Jason Montleon 2015-11-17 07:26:05 EST
If it's happening in post installation we might just be missing a package or packages. I'll take a look and see if I can sort it out.
Comment 4 Jason Montleon 2015-11-18 14:43:28 EST
I don't know why yet, but it's trying to write grub.cfg in /boot/efi/EFI/fedora instead of redhat. Still investigating.
Comment 5 Jason Montleon 2015-11-18 15:33:12 EST
The product title needs to start with Red Hat, otherwise anaconda guesses it is Fedora. As we have it set to RHEL OSP Undercloud that's why it's breaking. I am spinning a new ISO with it changed to Red Hat OSP Undercloud until they decide what they want it to be that will also satisfy anaconda.

Verified in 20151118.t.3.

Please note that the system I tested on was a Dell.  The reboot said "No boot device available" when boot mode was set to BIOS.

It worked fine when boot mode was set to UEFI.  May be worth doc text.
