+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1680013 +++

Description of problem:

We are unable to install RHEL8.2 with the following ks.cfg
lang en_US
keyboard us
timezone America/New_York --isUtc
rootpw redhat
#sshpw --username=root redhat
#platform x86, AMD64, or Intel EM64T
eula --agreed
bootloader --location=mbr --append="rhgb quiet crashkernel=auto"
clearpart --all --initlabel --drives=/dev/nvme0n1

# Disk partitioning information
part /boot/efi --fstype=efi --size=512
part /boot --fstype=ext4 --size=512
part pv.0 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=/dev/nvme0n1 --encrypted --cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 --passphrase=redhat --luks-version=luks1
volgroup rootvg pv.0
logvol / --size=5000 --fstype=ext4 --vgname=rootvg --name=root

auth --passalgo=sha512 --useshadow
selinux --permissive
firewall --disabled
firstboot --disable

If we change the option from "--size=1" to "--size=16", the installation works:
part pv.0 --size=16 --grow --ondisk=/dev/nvme0n1 --encrypted --cipher=aes-cbc-essiv:sha256 --passphrase=redhat --luks-version=luks1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhel-8.2-x86_64-dvd.iso (from https://access.redhat.com/downloads/content/479/ver=/rhel---8/8.2/x86_64/product-software)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

$ qemu-img create test.img 20G

qemu-system-x86_64 \
        -enable-kvm \
        -cpu host \
        -smp 2 \
        -m 4G \
        -boot d \
        -net nic \
        -net user,hostfwd=tcp::2222-:22 \
        -cdrom rhel-8.2-x86_64-dvd.iso \
        -rtc base=localtime \
        -drive id=drive_image1,if=none,aio=native,cache=none,file=test.img \
        -device nvme,id=image1,drive=drive_image1,serial=NVME_D001
