Got this crash at disk initialization when attempting to install a latest RHEL
6.2 Xen full-virt guest. There were no problems with a Xen paravirt guest.
I was also able to "convert" the successfully installed paravirt guest to a full-virt guest using the following steps.
1) destroy the config for the paravirt guest, but not the disk image
2) virt-install using the RHEL 6.1 release for the repo and the old paravirt guest disk image for the disk image
3) select update instead of reinstall and to rewrite the boot loader
4) anaconda immediately says the update is complete (since the image actually has packages that are all >= to 6.1) and prompts for reboot
5) the reboot succeeds and the guest works fine, already running on the -174 kernel
(note that the attachment is missing here because of bug 727243)
Thanks for reporting this, can you please attach all /sys/firmware/edd/int13_dev*/host_bus
or confirm the files do not exist?
I had already destroyed the failed guest, so I had to try and recreate it. This time it successfully installed and booted from the 6.2 nightly repo I used, which has
Nevermind, i had a fix ready for that scenario and since I believe it can occur on some machines (unfortunately including xen) I'll go ahead with it.
Posted a patch with a unit test and a fix. The unit test reproduces the traceback from comment 0:

With anaconda-13.21.128 I can successfully install Xen FV guest and the patch is present in the code. Setting Verified=SanityOnly.
