Description of problem:
Virt-installed F16 alpha tc1 by kickstart, but it failed to install bootloader. It's probably because it uses GPT partitioning table as default, but BIOS boot is not specified in the kickstart.

The partitioning and bootloader is like this:
# Specifies how the GRUB boot loader should be installed
bootloader --location mbr
# Removes partitions from the system, prior to creation of new partitions
clearpart --all --initlabel
part /boot --fstype ext4 --size 500
part /     --fstype ext4 --size 5000
part swap --fstype swap --size 500

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 16.14
16 alpha tc1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot with kickstart like the above

Expected results:
install without error

Additional info
How can I configure to have msdos partition table?
