EFI install fails after installing all packages.

traceback of error
EFI is in the Beta criteria, not Alpha; so re-proposing these bugs as Beta blockers and Alpha NTH (if you can get fixes in time I'd certainly be in favour of taking them into the anaconda rebuild for the next Alpha compose).
Perhaps this would fix it up:
diff --git a/pyanaconda/bootloader.py b/pyanaconda/bootloader.py
index 31a78c8..9260a10 100644

Like Adam said, beta material but it wouldn't hurt to get it in the alpha if possible.
