OK - got the (custom) installation working using disk druid.
This implies that the issue could be an fdisk problem ??
We've experienced this on 8 other DL360's without any RAID controllers, which
reinforces my suspicion ..... fdisk is the culprit ??
Installing using disk druid isn't ideal, as disk druid makes the decisions as to
which partition goes where on the disk :(
installer dying is not an fdisk problem :)
Going to reassign this to anaconda where it belongs.
Could you try either with the updates disk available for Red Hat Linux 7.0 or
with Red Hat Linux 7.2? There have been many things fixed in this timeframe.
Closing due to inactivity, please reopen if you continue to have problems.
