Made it a 80DB IDE (vs SCSI) virtual disk and get past it detecting 0GB for disk space during setup.

However then i get a Traceback :kickstart.KickstartValueError: specified disk sda in partition command which does not exist

I just ran into the same issue you're experiencing. After playing around, i found out that when creating the VM, if you choose the SCSI disk (with > 60GB capacity, no need to allocate space) and the LSI Logic adaptor (not Buslogic!) it works perfectly.
