Description of problem:

When trying to partition the disk with disk-druid, anaconda says that onother 
partitioning tool has wrongly partitioned the disk, but it gives me the option 
of ignoring this error. I ignore it, but then I get the following error:

I have found the problem. I was using an installation kernel without LVM 
support. I have built a new kernel with LVM support and the error dissappeared.
