I would suspect the mount command. First, anaconda does not run
rpcbind, so you have to fire that up:

service rpcbind start

I mount a directory at installation time which I later use, so in my
kickstart %post section, I add it to fstab, like so:

# Adjust to suit!
echo "charlesc:/crc/isos/f7 /mnt/nfs nfs _netdev,ro 0 0" >> /etc/fstab

Which makes the next line possible:

mount /mnt/nfs

You can specify a log file, e.g. for a non-chroot %post section:

%post --log=/mnt/sysimage/root/post.install.log

If you don't want to go the fstab route, and starting rpcbind doesn't
do it for you, you might specify the file sytem type in the mount command.
