So you're trying to do a partitionless install, right?  This looks like a dupe
of bug #45686.  Partitionless installs work for me, and I have been unable to
reproduce this bug.  How much disk space do you have free on the FAT partition
that you wish to install to?  Also, how much swap space did you specify?  The
FAT partition already existed and was formatted, correct?
