Error While parsing Kickstart configuration

I am trying to install RHEL5.7 on VM, I am getting following error while performing installation.

"The Following error was found while parsing your kickstart configuration

The following problem occurred on line 3 of the kickstart file:

option --size: Invalid integer value:''"

Hello Farzani,

Thanks your help, but unfortunately it didn't work. Actually the same kickstart file perfectly works fine on physical box, the kick-start file didn't work only on the VMs.

Here is the workaround i followed.

I formatted VM harddisk by installing complete RHEL5 OS and then i started Kickstart installation and it was successful.

I was not able to find the reason why the kickstart file didn't work on VM disks. so the workaround i posted helped me to proceed further.
