Description of problem:

Attempting to install F-13-Beta-TC1-x86_64 to a MacbookPro 5,5 with into an existing partition scheme fails.  I believe the partition scheme is valid, but anaconda tells me "sda must be a MSDOS disk label" when attempting to install.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * anaconda version 13.36
 * updates=http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-576529.img 

How reproducible:
 * everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
 1. Attempt install using the following configuration:

Device Desc            Format?   MountPoint
sda1   EFI               NO
sda2   HFS+              NO
sda3   /boot (for F12)   NO
sda4   /boot             YES     /boot
sda5   LVM PV            NO

LVM Setup
 LogVol    VolGroup     New?  Size   Format?   MountPoint
  f12_root vg_flatline   NO   39.06G  NO   
  home     vg_flatline   NO   39.06G  NO       /home
  swap     vg_flatline   NO   2.00G   YES      swap
  f13_root vg_flatline  YES   40G     YES      /

Actual results:

 * Dialog indicating "sda must have a MSDOS disk label"

Expected results:

 * I think this is a valid partition scheme, so it should be okay?
