kickstart config

Similar to bug 895693, for a long time I've been using a simple kickstart file without any storage settings. I reuse the same kickstart on several different virtual and physical machines, so I always configure the storage by hand.

With my kickstart file (attached), I always end up with an install without a bootloader. From storage.log:

  INFO blivet: user specified that bootloader install be skipped

I tried fixing it by hitting ctrl-alt-F2, and running

# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# grub2-install /dev/sda

Which at least got Grub to boot. I then booted the installer again, chrooted into the installed OS, and ran

# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Which finally allowed me to boot all the way into the installed OS.

I was testing with F19 TC3.

Here's the full storage.log in case it helps. Please ask if you need any other logs.

Please attach anaconda.log as well. Thanks.

This appears to work correctly with Fedora 21.
