Description of problem:
After I start installing from ISO, an Installation Summary screen shows, and there is an error under the Installation Destination:

'Kickstart Insufficient'

and an orange triangle is displayed.

The disk, according to the installer, has 465.76 GiB. There was previous installation of OSP node present on the disk, but I was able to delete it within the installer.

After I tried to run the installer with manual partitioning done by me, a few seconds later there is an error:

"IOException: Partition(s) 2 on /dev/sda have been written, but we have been unable to inform the kernal og the change, probably because it/they are in use. As a result, the old partition(s) will remain in use. You should reboot now before making further changes."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Hit this on both install isos

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use the machines as a OSP nodes in an RHELOSP deployment
2. Connect the ISO to the machine, restart
3. Boot from the installation ISO and start the installation

Actual results:
Kickstart insufficient and then IOException when storage configured manually

Expected results:
No error; partitions created by kickstart; install continues and finishes successfully

Additional info:

Workaround is to create the partitioning manually, start the installation, hit the error, restart the machine and run the ISO again. It then works as it should.

When I just restarted the machine and ran the ISO again, the same problem appeared.

The installer does a clearpart; not sure why it's not wiping the disk as I regularly reuse my system without issue. Can you try to reproduce this and provide the anaconda logs?
Comment 3 Jason Montleon 2016-01-19 10:58:27 EST
I just started the installation on a host that was previously an OSP node, it's currently installing RHCI.
Comment 4 John Matthews 2016-01-22 10:27:46 EST
Will investigate further during GA.
Comment 9 Tasos Papaioannou 2016-08-26 15:16:06 EDT
