The next thing it's doing is probing for disks in order to determine if you want
to install or upgrade an existing install, so there's plenty that could be going
wrong.  Do you have an unusual disk configuration?  Do you see any kernel panic
messages on tty4?

  With the same instance of anaconda running in graphic mode, the
install would progress past the "Install Anyway" challenge (but I had
to cancel that install for other reasons, before any partitioning info
was written to disk).  So I believe there was a text-mode specific
bug, since the graphic-mode installer behaved as expected in the same

No, just multiple partitions on /dev/sda.

> Do you see any kernel panic messages on tty4?.

I did not originally check for such.  By the time I could re-run this
install attempt, the version of anaconda has progressed to,
where I find both the graphic-mode and text-mode installs to properly
progress past the "Install Anyway" challenge.

It would seem whatever bug caused this has been fixed, so I'm going to close the
report. If you run into this again, please reopen.
