How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start the RedHat linux 8.0 upgrade from Linux 7.1.
2. I did not have a bootloader before as it was ot getting configured.
3. While running installation in linux text mode, choose not to configure any boot loader.
4. Click Ok to proceed and error is dumped.

Actual Results:  1. Anaconda crashed and installation exited.

Expected Results:  1. It should have accepted the input and carried on with the installation.
