I'm able to do this with no prompts.

What do you mean "remove the graphical" -- as far as I can 
tell, it's graphical by default. The absence of the word 
"text" means it'll do a graphical install.

When you get a prompt, what is it asking for? Do you have a 
line for "auth" or "authconfig"? (In general, make sure you 
have all the required directives like "lang", "keyboard", etc.)
