Description of problem:
Anaconda fails installing rawhide when a certain partitioning scheme is already on the harddisks

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I start with a system that has the following partitioning on the disks:

  Device  Start    End     Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1     1    130    1044193+  83  Linux

/dev/sdb1     1  24792  199141708+  8e  Linux LVM

I do a installation booting with pxe and boot parameters "text nomodeset".

After formatting is complete the following error occurs:
An error occurered mounting device /dev/sda1 as /boot: mount failed: (2, None). This is a fatal error and the install cannot continue.

On tty2 I can see that anaconda has altered the partitioning scheme. 

In attach a screen print from tty3.

With anaconda- I still get this error, but after every installation run anaconda adds an extra boot partition on drive /dev/sda although I asked to "replace existing linux system".

When I wipe out the LVM partition on /dev/sdb this error does not occure.

We had a variety of (2, None) related bugs during this release cycle but I believe they are all solved by now.  Thanks for the bug report.
