How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Use Entire drive"
2. Add a remote iSCSI volume
3. Check [X] review partitioning

Expected results:

Unless iBFT is supported, any boot partitions should be on local storage volumes.

I appreciate your testing efforts, and I can understand you seeing this
as a bug, but it is not a bug, atleast not really. You pressed the advanced
storage button to get into this state, once you do that all bets are of :)

More seriously, if you start looking at exotic storage setups there are to many ways people can shoot themselves in the foot, if we have to check them all we will fight a loosing battle.

So I'm closing this as won't fix.
