Kickstart installing a VM machine stuck at /dev/vda.


I am trying to install a VM machine(fedora 13) through kickstart. It stops at:

Error processing drive: /dev/vda. I have to manually click one of four buttons to continue: "Ignore", "Ignore all", "Re-initialize" and "Re-initialize all".

Can you anyone tell me what I need to put in ks.cfg so it automatically pick one of the options?

Thanks a lot!

Just let you guys know, I add --initlabel to ks.cfg to bypass that so the whole installation process become totally automatic.
