I cannot specify my kickstart server repo for kickstart of CentOS 7

I am trying to kickstart CentOS 7.0 but I get the following error for the repo:

INSTALLATION SOURCE, error setting up base repository

Here is the relevant line from the anaconda file.

This does not work despite being able to access through a browser:
url --url=http://10.10.12.254/CENTOS7.0-x86_64-ES

This does work but I'd prefer not to go to www:
url --url=http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/

I am able to kickstart other versions with this anaconda file by changing the url path.

Anyone have any ideas as to why this might be?

What if you put the trailing slash (/) after URL ?
=>
http://10.10.12.254/CENTOS7.0-x86_64-ES/

what error do you get ? are you able to use ALT+Fn to see what happens ?
Alt-F3
Alt-F4
Alt-F5

I tried with trailing / but it made no difference.

Alt-F3 & Alt-F5 do not appear to do anything
Alt-F4 goes to black screen from which I can't seem to escape
