Minimal text-only Fedora install / Error while booting spin

Good day!
I have a question. Which packages/groups should be included on the minimal text-only Fedora install (NOT Live) CD to make it work?
I get a
Code:
No root device found
Boot has failed, sleeping forever.
type error trying to boot the spin that I built with Pungi.
Not sure it's because of the packages though. I test my spins in VirtualBox if this helps.
Thanks in advance!

I not sure what packages but system-conifg-kickstart can help you create a custom .ks pretty easily.

The error message is telling you that grub cannot find the drive (or partition) that the kernel is supposed to be on. Can you post your /boot/grub/grub.conf file?

+1
The error you have is usually caused by the wrong root label in grub.conf's kernel line : root=LABEL=$ xxxxxx
I have never used pungi but have had good success with livecd-creator

Well, the problem was with the lvm2 package. I try to make a minimal server install, and it it's necessary to include this package if you want to use lvm.
