= Steps to reproduce =
1. Perform a default install on a system with 4 disks (virt in this case)
2. After install ... wipe out the start of each disk
for DISK in sda sdb sdc sdd;
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/$DISK bs=1024 count=1024
3. Initiate a new install on the same system with the same disks
4. Select 'Basic Storage'
5. Choose 'Replace linux partitions'
6. Manually delete all logical volumes and physical volumes
7. Attempt to partition using swap, /boot (ext4) and / (ext4)
I was able to reproduce by just doing "Use all disk space" or similar with four uninitialized disks. It was a typo in the action sorting that tried to push "create partition" actions before "create disklabel" actions, which is obviously problematic.
Fixed in anaconda-13.25-1.
Attempting to verify this against anaconda-13.25, I stumbled on bug#563677.
Retested procedure in comment#2 against anaconda-13.25. THis bug has been fixed.
