RHEL 7 problems.



I'm reasonably experienced in doing RHEL 5 and 6 kickstarts, but this
is my first pass at building a custom install CD for RHEL 7.

I'm working from the RHEL 7.2 sources (meaning not Centos). I used this:
 http://www.smorgasbork.com/2012/01/04/building-a-custom-centos-7-kickstart-disc-part-1/
as my "checklist" for the most part, with some of this:
https://highon.coffee/blog/security-harden-centos-7/

My kickstart config looks like:
#version=RHEL7

install

# System authorization information
auth --enableshadow --passalgo=sha512

# Use CDROM installation media
cdrom
# Accept EULA
eula --agreed

services --enabled=NetworkManager,sshd
reboot

#firstboot --enable
ignoredisk --only-use=sda
# Keyboard layouts

In isolinux.cfg I have:

...
menu tabmsg Press Tab for full configuration options on menu items.

menu separator # insert an empty line
menu separator # insert an empty line

label Basic KS
  menu label ^Kickstart
  menu default
  kernel vmlinuz
  append initrd=initrd.img
inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=RHEL-7.2\x20Server.x86_64
inst.ks=cdrom:/dev/cdrom:/ks/base_ks.cfg
menu separator # insert an empty line
...


grub.conf is:
#debug --graphics
default=1
splashimage= SPLASHPATH@
timeout 60
hiddenmenu
title Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
        findiso
        kernel @KERNELPATH@ @ROOT@
        initrd @INITRDPATH@
title Test this media & install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
        findiso
        kernel @KERNELPATH@ @ROOT@ rd.live.check quiet
        initrd @INITRDPATH@


Which gets displayed, and then will start Linux.

I am testing on VMware Workstation 12 Player.

However I get stuck at:

[        23.820146] work still pending

(and yes, I know the 23..... is not all that relevant)

the line to generate the ISO is:
 mkisofs -o custom.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot   -V
'Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2'   -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R
-J -v -T isolinux/


There used to be a way to view the virtual terminals (alt-F whatever)
but apparently that's gone away.

Any ideas on what I'm missing here?
