Disk area was not empty (most likely). I used the same system for xen
host/guest systems and never needed this anaconda statement although I
re-installed different guests there many times. I do not use it in
kickstarts of real (not virtual) systems neither - I preserve some
non-system partitions over re-installations and in both cases anaconda
works just fine. I'll take it as KVM specific feature, which is fine as
long as I know about it.
Again, thanks for help,
