snapshot of both guests showing different dialog
Description of problem:
I have these guests:
* guest #1 "BTRFS-1" (3x SATA disk 9.5gb) (SPICE/QLX)
* guest #2 "FFRAWH-2" (1x IDE disk 9.7gb) (SPICE/QLX)
Both use the same iso, F18b TC2 (both anacona 18.12)
On both guests:
Select default "engish" & "accept fate"
Enter Storage:Installation Destination
Select one disk in each guest, then continue.
The "installation Options" dialog is diffent in each host!!!
For some reason BTRFS-1 gets the old dialog.
* attached screenshot & /tmp logs of each guest.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F18b TC2 (anaconda 18.12)
always (on some guests)
Steps to Reproduce:
one guest gets the old dialog, the others the new one.

So, dialog #1 is the BTRFS-1 one and dialog #2 is the FFRAWH-2,
