Daniel, thank you for the information and adding the --wait does allow 
the guest to restart itself properly and complete the install.

Ideally though I want a script that starts automated installs of 
multiple guests so they all install simultaneously. Using the --wait it 
wouldn't start the next install until the first completes which adds up 
when creating 50+ guests.

Is virt-install maybe not the right tool to use here for automated mass 
guest installs? The script we're using is specifically to test our 
PXE/kickstart install process for different versions of RHEL and nothing 
else. We tear everything down and build again when something changes to 
our image process.
