Kickstart installs on ia64 fail if partition table is changed during install

Kickstart installs on ia64 fail if partition table is changed during install especially if we're using the --initlabel in the kickstart config file.

If I use clearpart --all --initlabel and have the partition table
change in the partition section from what it was previously, various
errors occur.

These may include telling you some partitions are too small, swap
errors, etc.

Rebooting and starting again will clear up the errors.

It would appear that kernel doesn't realize the partitions have
changed and is still using the old information.

Simply removing the --initlabel flag will clear up this problem, but
then you may get asked questions during the install which is also not

any insights are appreciated Thanks
