Got the problem reproducing, but...

   Unknown boot option 'libata.ignore_hpa=1': ignoring

Talked to davej, module parameters can't be passed on the command line 
just yet. So anyone with an FC6 system that uses part of the host 
protected area is currently not able to upgrade to F7 using anaconda 
(FC6 to F7 can be done with some modprobe.conf magic and upgrading via 
yum though).

davej is going to poke some folks who were working on a patch to allow 
module parameters to be passed on the kernel command line.
