It is certainly possible to setup such a machine, though currently not as
easy as it should via sysinst. Please give more details where/how it fails
with manual setup for you.
For a start, you are using GPT to partition the disk and use "gpt biosboot"
to install the primary bootstrap?
P.S.: full support in sysinst is upcoming, but will not make it into 7.0.
