Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58499
Disk Druid creates bad partition table.

Description of Problem:
Something new for 7.2 because _that_ bug did not happen with 7.1.
Left to its own devices, i.e. an automatic repartitioning in
a "naive first time user" mode Disk Druid writes the following
# fdisk -lu /dev/hda
Disk /dev/hda: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 39813 cylinders
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 bytes
# start end size fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
a: 1 102400 102400 ext2
b: 102401 4197904 4095504 swap
c: 4197905 40132502 35934598 ext2
This means that no space is left for a boot block and a disk
cannot be made bootable. It is likely too much to expect from
first time users that they will be able to resize the first partition.
