Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/storage.log to this bug report.  Thanks.

Comment 4 Igor Zhang 2010-06-04 14:08:03 UTC
After the prompt you see in my attachment, I reinstalled it.
Could you tell me how to get the two files you want?

Comment 5 Chris Lumens 2010-06-04 14:48:19 UTC
Add the sshd command line parameter, boot the installer, proceed through installation until you hit the error message in your screenshot.  Then ssh into the computer as root (no password - that's why you need to add the command line parameter), scp /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/storage.log to another location, and attach them to the bug from there.
