I appear to have been hit by a change in the way anaconda & blivet
initialization work.  I could install just fine with the Fedora-20-Beta
DVD but hit huge problems with Fedora-20-TC5 on real hardware.

The systems involved are real hardware and each have multiple installs
into different partitions (a mixture of regular partitions, logical
volumes and BTRFS subvolumes).  Not all of these install can still
boot.  An example:
     1. a system installed on lvm-root1 with /boot on /dev/sda6
     2. later, a new ssd was added and /dev/sda6 was used for /boot with
the rootfs on a subvol on the new ssd.
     3. This left lvm-root1 still existing but with a UUID for /boot
which no longer existed on ths hardware.

The result: anaconda/blivet barf all over the place with very strange
errors. saying it cannot find a UUID.  Of course not, it is gone.  So what!
Are you talking about crash, error message dialog, or log contents?
Please clarify and provide the actual/exact messages.
I am in the process of creating one (possibly two) test cases which will demonstrate what I believe is the problem cause by commit 29448424d5eb638ab1841b07a6a32d3cb085fa30

For now, I added a bit more info in RHBZ#1040148

Not good, not good.  If nothing else, this needs to be documented so
other folks do not spend a lot of time chasing their tails.
