anaconda can't find the linux partition in rescue mode

When I boot the latest rawhide iso in rescue mode, anaconda searches for the existing partitions to mount for a bit, and then announces it couldn't find anything. All the logs from /tmp attached.

The linux partitions should be on sdb.
What release of Fedora do you have installed on your sdb drive?
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda. I just did a couple related rescue mode commits that should take care of this problem.
Yes, just tried the latest rawhide boot.iso and it finds and mounts the installation partition. However, there is now a different problem: the mount seems to mess up SELinux labels. If I reboot after the rescue-mode mount, there's a ton of permission denied messsages and the system hangs. Things work just far enough to boot in single mode and run
$ restorecon -v -R /
and then it works again. Restorecon prints a few messages like
restorecon reset / context system_u:-object_r:mnt_t:s0 -> system_u:-object_r:root_t:s0
Pls open a new bug for you selinux issue.
