Formatting multiple disks during kickstart


I'm trying to format 7 extra (1TB) disks during the kickstart installation, but KS just sits there, and seems like it's doing nothing.
I've attempted to do 1 or 2 of the the 7 and it works okay, but when I try all 7 that's when it just sits there.

Here's the snippet of my kickstart file:

clearpart --all --initlabel
bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda
part / --bytes-per-inode=4096 --fstype="ext3" --size=8192 --ondisk=sda 
part swap --size=8192 --ondisk-sda
part /export --size=100g --ondisk=sda
part /grid/0/data --size=200g --ondisk=sda
part /grid/0/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sda
part /grid/1/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdb
part /grid/1/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdb
part /grid/2/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdc
part /grid/2/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdc
part /grid/3/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdd
part /grid/3/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdd
part /grid/4/data --size=200g --ondisk=sde
part /grid/4/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sde
part /grid/5/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdf
part /grid/5/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdf
part /grid/6/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdg
part /grid/6/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdg
part /grid/7/data --size=200g --ondisk=sdh
part /grid/7/data2 --size=1 --grow --ondisk=sdh
Any help would be much appreciated.
