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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run installation with partitioning described above, minimal package set
User can only shutdown the guest at the end of the installation.
Rebooting into installed system is possible.
This happens is 'chreipl' is unable to set the reIPL device. What are you installing on and what does the storage layout look like?
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.
