kickstart error - 'no valid devices to create filesystems'


I have a machine with two hard drives, both empty, and the simplest 
kickstart file in the entire world.  

At first, I was getting errors that kickstart 'Could not allocate 
partitions', even though I was well within the space limitations of 
the disk, and I was only creating the minimum required partitions 
using only a fraction of the drive's 36GB capacity.  

This new error came after I added 'zerombr yes' to my ks.cfg file.  
The partition part of my ks.cfg looks like this:

clearpart --all --initlabel
zerombr yes
part /boot/efi --fstype vfat --size 101
part  swap --size 1000
part / --fstype ext3 --size 6000

NOTE:  This is an itanium, which requires the /boot/efi partition, so 
don't let that throw you if you haven't kickstarted itaniums before.  

Any ideas?
