missing section images-xen for x86_64

ERROR No section: 'images-xen'
This used to work quite well in Fedora 14 (and F13).
When I manually add to .treeinfo (just like in Fedora 14):
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
The CentOS 5.5 virt-installer is able to find the kernel and initrd files. However the kernel panics soon after (unable to find root) looks like it is not recognising the initrd image.

Output of virt-install
virt-install --name=f15 --disk pool=default,size=15 --ram=512 --vcpus=1 --location=nfs:172.20.128.101:/data/d01/tlbox/swrepo/f15dev-os-x86_64 --nographics --paravirt --network=network:vlan0
The nfs location is a mirror of the "development/15/x86_64/os" repository.
I believe this should be a "blocker" bug as it impact the following release criteria:
15. The release must boot successfully as a virtual guest in a situation where the virtual host is running a supported Xen implementation

mgracik: if you agree, I'll go ahead and mark this as an accepted beta blocker.
I agree, I already have a patch for this in rawhide.
lorax-0.3.1-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
Took another look at the output logs and the telling item is:
[ 0.000000] initrd too large to handle, disabling initrd
Since F15 does not use the stage2.img, the initrd.img becomes too big for Xen (at least the CentOS 5.5 build) which uses xen 3.0.3.

That is a new and different issue from what is being tracked in this bug report. Can you please open a new bug report against the kernel for this? You may also want to raise this topic for discussion on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sorry, actually my issue is related to
And the increased memory requirements by Anaconda (I was using a 512M VM).
lorax-0.3.2-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
Verified this fix in a private boot.iso build using the updated lorax. The generated .treeinfo contains [images-xen]
lorax-0.3.2-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
