Kickstart fails to form boot partition [Not enough space in filesystems for the current software selection]

The kickstart automatic installation of the Linux operating system fails but the normal install is successful. To resolve this issue follow the steps given below:

  • Add clearpart --all --drives=${devname} --initlabel in kickstart disk section. This will delete partition table of disk.
  • If the above option does not resolve the issue add zerombr option above clearpart command. The zerombr option will initialize and destroy all invalid partition tables.
  • If above both steps does not work than boot into rescue mode of Linux OS and use dmraid or wipefs as follows:

dmraid -r -E /dev/sda
wipefs -fa /dev/sda
