I tried that on a fresh install. Note that I had only 6 i386 packages. I
think this is because our kickstart is excluding some stuff to get
closer to the "minimal install".

$ rpm -qa --queryformat "%{name} %{arch}\n"|grep "i.86"
libtermcap i386
libgcc i386
glibc i686
readline i386
libhugetlbfs i386
mkinitrd i386

Removed that.
Reboot was fine.

Best Regards, Markus
