Re: kickstart error - 'no valid devices to create filesystems'



I've got a very good idea what the problem is, having seen it recently.

My experience is that you hit this error if your boot.img (or bootnet.img)
doesn't match the OS version that you're installing.

I ran into this problem with VA's version of RedHat - and don't recall
having the issue with RedHat 6.1 - YMMV. This can be as subtle as March
and June versions of "the same" OS.

cheers!
