abrt log

Description of problem:
Installer from the live image fails attempting to initialize partitions.  I've attached the abrt.log.  The log mentions "/dev/sda-1: 1" I'm not sure of the syntax there but /dev/sda1 is a 100MB windows system partition and I did not tell the installer to use or format sda1.  sda2 is also a windows partition.  I told the installer to use the rest of the space (400GB) and let it divide it up into partitions the way it wanted to.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
tried twice, happened both times.

it looks like this is all attempts.  I think I exited a time or two myself, but other than that, each attempt had this problem.

http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-737532.img fixed this problem for me.  Anaconda was able to format the create and format the partitions properly and finish the install.
