Unable to install F10 with kickstart

I'm struggling with a strange issue. I'm trying to create a
self-installer environment based on F10, grub, local ISO and kickstart:

- created a /dev/sda5 filesystem and copied the DVD ISO onto this
- extracted the images/install.img file onto /dev/sda5
- created a grub.conf:

title Install F10 kickstart
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz ks=hd:sda1/ks.cfg repo=hd:/dev/sda5:/iso
        initrd /initrd.img

- in the kickstart I defined the hd path:

harddrive --partition=/dev/sda5 --dir=/iso

When I started the installer, it stopped almost with the same issue at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=473351: anaconda can't find

Here's the anaconda's relevant log:

09:45:23 INFO    : Searching for file on path /tmp/mnt/ks.cfg

       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
       ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

But when anaconda asks me and I give exactly the same repo path to it
(sda5, /iso dir), the installation continues well:

09:45:48 INFO    : partition /dev/sda5 selected
09:45:48 INFO    : mounting device /dev/sda5 for hard drive install

Am I wrong?
