I am having essentially the same issue. Install crashes after a custom disk layout was selected.

Boot method: 5.4 i386 network boot image, data source =

"Server" install profile selected with the CentOS Extras repository selected but no custom RPMs chosen.

Hardware, Dell PE 2850 with a PERC 4 controller.

The exception occurs a few seconds after the dependency calculation of the selected RPMs starts. Exception happens predictably in the same place over and over.

I believe I've narrowed down the problem to either the 'Server' default package group selection, or the button that includes the CentOS extras repository. I don't believe the choice of partitioning schemes has any impact.

I believe it is indeed related to the "CentOS Extras" repository being checked. I did an identical install to a failed one with the same messages (Image over NFS, server install) with the only difference being that selection. It worked fine without the "CentOS Extras" repository checked.

I had the same issue too. I used netinstall img.

the "CentOS Extras" repository was checked in.

without "CentOS Extras" repository worked fine
