Hard to say.  I think it would help to capture a screenshot of the error
you are seeing.  In addition, I recommend saving the anaconda log files.
You can access the logs during an install by changing to tty2
(<ctrl><alt>F2) and saving the /tmp/*log files to another system.  With
the screenshot, and the anaconda logs, I believe you have enough
information to file an actionable bug report.

You mentioned VMWare.  I don't use VMWare, but others on test@ do.  It's
possible that the VMWare storage driver wasn't loaded, or isn't
detecting your storage properly.  Perhaps others with more VMWare
experience can offer some feedback.

Oh, also a small suggestion.  For future posts to Fedora mailing lists,
it might be a good idea to post plain-text (non-html) messages [1].
Plain text messages are more accessible to wider range of email clients.
