anaconda is broken since many years in manual partitioning
and getting worser with each fedora release. AFAIK there is
a complete rewrite in progress
until that add "noefi" or "nogpt" as boot param
the need for a kernel-param to decide between DOS/GPT
is simply broken by design, but however you need it
the main problem here is the useless error message
a F15 install media has a different message where you can
successful find with google the "noefi" boot param for the
users mailing list
