Description of problem:
At the end of the installation on s390x, anaconda should ask user to reboot into installed system. Instead of this, anaconda shows only "Shutdown" button. Messages on the screen says:

Congratulations, your Fedora
installation is complete.

Please shutdown to use the installed

Error determining boot device's disk

/boot is stored on a logical volume, which should be valid configuration (at least RHEL6.1 supports it).
I can't see anything suspicious in logs or terminal, anaconda-tb-all.log is attached.

After shutdown and IPL from the DASD drive, system boots.

Following was executed before shutting down the install:

-bash-4.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage/ /bin/sh
sh-4.2# /lib/s390-tools/zipl_helper.device-mapper /boot/

sh-4.2# ls -l /dev/ | grep 94

This happens is 'chreipl' is unable to set the reIPL device.  What are you installing on and what does the storage layout look like?
Comment 2 Jan Stodola 2011-05-11 13:09:09 EDT
Clearing needinfo, since David had a chance to investigate on the system before rebooting.
Please, let me know if any additional info or testing is needed.

I'm not seeing this on F17 installs.  Please re-open if you see it again.
