Hey,

I solved my "The installation source given by device ['sdb2'] could not be found".
Apparently ignoredisk is so strong it not only ignores the disks to be partitioned but also the disks holding the installation source...

Now I ran into:
  In interactive step cleardiskssel, can't continue

In anaconda.log I saw:

  step installtype does not exist

  step confirminstall does not exist

  step complete does not exist  (14 times)
Then it seem to do the step setuptime correctly.
And then it goes into stepcleardiskssel and fails.

Found an old bug about it, but not much info...
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=565873
My kickstart:
  cmdline
  skipx
  install
  harddrive --partition=sdb2 --dir=/centos
  keyboard fr-pc
  lang en_US
  timezone  Europe/Paris
  reboot
  logging --level=info
  #ignoredisk --only-use=sda
  part /boot  --onpart sda1 --noformat
  part /      --onpart sda2 --noformat
  part swap   --onpart sda3 --noformat
  part /usr   --onpart sda5 --noformat
  part /var   --onpart sda6 --noformat
  part /home  --onpart sda7 --noformat
  bootloader --driveorder=sda,sdb --location=mbr

  ...


Thx,
JD
