Hurry, can you gather all the /tmp/*log files from this installation and include them in the report?  Thanks!

Adding to F14 Final release blocker as this falls into the criteria [1]:

  The installer must be able to create and install to any workable 
  partition layout using any file system offered in a default 
  installer configuration, LVM, software, hardware or BIOS RAID, 
  or combination of the above

I installed F14 Alpha RC4 DVD x86_64, chose custom layout, created just a single partition for / (no swap, no other partition) and I received a warning about missing swap partition. Therefore I didn't reproduce this bug.
Comment 5 He Rui 2010-08-17 01:37:34 EDT
Ah, it happened when there's already one swap partition but I didn't use it. And if I remove all swap partitions, the warning window will pop up. So close it as not a bug. Sorry for the noise everyone.
