The text installer has limited capabilities compared to the GUI
installer. Most notably there is no support for configuring partition
layout, storage methods or package selection. Please refer to the
official documentation for details. Here you can find some useful
information on creating and using kickstart files which can be used to
perform advanced configuring without the need for the GUI installer.

The official documentation is here:
