It's not going to work.  anaconda needs to be able to detect devices to
use them to install to/from.  Otherwise, there's no way to be able to
catch people trying to install to non-existent devices.

Not to mention the bizarreness that is the fact that you only get the
partitions instead of the whole disk.
