UEFI Kickstart failed to find a suitable stage1 device

Latest response

Here is the error:
Starting installer, one moment...
anaconda 19.31.123-1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 started.
* installation log files are stored in /tmp during the installation
* shell is available on TTY2

Generating updated storage configuration
storage configuration failed: failed to find a suitable stage1 device

I used the Kickstart (KS) configurator to make sure I was not making some basic error but I get the same result.
If I follow the installation through after manually specifying additional items, including disk install destination, I am able to install RH.
When the system reboots and I can login, none of my custom packages are loaded so I assume whatever the error is that it terminates my KS.

Here is the auto generated KS file.

platform x86, AMD64, or Intel EM64T

Here is what I get after the error (note the missing parameters):

Any help would be appreciated.


Any help would be appreciated.

I've got the same error when the /boot/efi partition was missing in the partitioning scheme. Try to add it to your storage configuration. Something like (use your own device, of course):
part /boot/efi --fstype vfat --size=200 --ondisk=sda

The installer should create it as the fist partition.

Oh, looks like the input field filtered out out my example in sharp brackets. Put your disk to the --ondisk=, like
part /boot/efi --fstype vfat --size=200 --ondisk=sda
