RE: --asprimary



If --onprimary fails, use a %pre section, and use fdisk with a <<EOF style
document to create that first partition.  I'm having to do this on IA-64 at
present to handle the EFI partition.  I'd entered a bug report about the
--asprimary, but haven't looked at it's status in a long time, it may be
fixed by now.

%pre
# I know I've already created an EFI partition before starting, I just need
to change
# the type.  fdisk could do all the work here...

# Change the EFI partition from type 0xef to type 0x6
mknod /dev/sda
mknod /dev/sda1
fdisk /dev/sda << EOF
t
1
6
w
EOF

# Format the EFI partition
mkdosfs /dev/sda1
# End of %pre


Then I have:
zerombr yes
clearpart --linux
part /boot/efi --size 100	--ondisk sda --type 6 --onpart sda1
--noformat


Thanks,
Matt

Try using --onprimary=1 instead
