This error occurred while trying to overwrite a Fedora 15 install with the DVD iso of 16 alpha. I chose the manual disk layout as I have two LV groups, one for /home, which I didn't want overwritten, and another spilt over /tmp; /usr; /var; and /. I have a separate partition for /boot on /dev/sda. All partitions were originally formatted to ext4 except home, which is ext3. All partitions except home were marked to be formatted.
I've tried several time to install the alpha, trying different combinations of formatting partitions (just / and /boot for example), and leaving out the /home volume group. I either get this error; a fatal error that doesn't give any option but to reboot; and on at least two occasions a duplicate of error #722952, which is marked as not a bug and doesn't get recorded.
I've gone back to version 15 on that box for now, but happy to try again if more info is needed or a workaround comes to light.
