Currently this is using gnome-initial-setup (after one edits the disk manually to enable it, going to fix that), and not Ignition.

I also want to experiment with changing it to use machineid-compat: false.

seems a bit risky to apply this to f29, first. I see #107 is part of this for rawhide. Let's fixup and merge that and then what do you think about getting the rest of this applied to rawhide and test it before we apply to f29.

This is just a WIP. It can't be applied as is since it will (without further work) break installations via Anaconda.

I'm targeting F29 as a stable base, let's not get too distracted by rawhide vs 29.

My goal here is just to publish the work so others can see it.

One thing that's broken about this is the resulting image has console=ttyS0,115200n8 I think because we're passing that to virt-install. Yet another anaconda artifact; we should change c-a to require that be specified in bootloader if it's desired.

Big picture though a blocker for us to switch to this path is going to be (for a lot of users):

Also right now this only does a BIOS layout, so I had to change my laptop's BIOS to enable that, but we're going to fix that in coreos-assembler.

Since coreos-assembler can now output metal-bios and metal-uefi, this gets even nicer.
