Bug Description

Default guided installation fails on s390x.

The default guided partitioning comes up with the following partitions:

 The following partitions are going to be formatted:
    partition #1 of DASD 0.0.0301 (ECKD) as ext4
    partition #5 of DASD 0.0.0301 (ECKD) as swap
    partition #6 of DASD 0.0.0301 (ECKD) as ext4

Which are too high partition numbers.

partitions #1, #2, #3 should be sufficient.

As a workaround, select to manually specify paritioning, e.g.:

    partition #1 of DASD 0.0.0301 (ECKD) as ext2, 500 MB /boot
    partition #2 of DASD 0.0.0301 (ECKD) as ext4, max /

The route cause appears to be lack of s390x support in partman-auto.
