There are a bunch of grub2-related issues associated with F16 anaconda
and one of the easiest ways to deal with them is to use gpt. There is a
nogpt kernel option that may help, but I have not tried it.
Also, if left to itself, F16 anaconda will (apparently) use gpt.
"Fedora 16 uses the newer GPT disk label format, when formatting an
entire disk during installation."
I am running a gpt F16 guest under rhel6/kvm without issues.
