Default unwanted prompt during koan xen install ...

I've got my kickstart for rhel5 xen guests defined with the following
disk/partition info:


bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=xvda --append="console=xvc0"
clearpart --all --drives=xvda
part swap --fstype swap --size 512 --ondisk=xvda
part / --fstype ext3 --ondisk=xvda --size=1 --grow


When I run my koan command and connect to the xm console, the install
works perfectly, with one hitch: I get prompted at the start of
anaconda, with ...

... and once I click "Yes", the rest of the install runs completely
automated without interaction. When I build physical systems, via a
similar (but obviously, not identical) kickstart, I don't have to
interact with the installer at all. Anything obvious I'm doing wrong
to cause that prompt to get thrown up?


Thanks,

Have you tried adding '--initlabel' to clearpart?

Kind regards,

That was it, exactly. Thanks, and I now feel dumb for overlooking
that. :-)

And I feel nerdy for remembering it ;-)
