I also had trouble reusing an old hard drive for installation, it
(anaconda's installation routine) wouldn't remove an old partition, no
matter what I tried.  It hid it from view, but it was still there, and
the installer would only try to use around half the drive capacity.

I booted the live image, used its gparted tool to obliterate my entire
hard drive, then ran the install to hard drive routine, successfully.
