That isn't going to work - the Anaconda installer will only look for
block devices, not partitions. Having partitions which are not a part
of a block device is a Xen driver hack which is not supportable. If
you want to have 3 completely separate volumes in the host be visible
as 3 separate volumes inside the guest, then you can export them as
individual devices 'xdva', 'xvdb', 'xvdc'. Then in Anaconda create a
single partition on each one, eg xvda1, xvdb1, xvdc1 which you can
then map to /, /var and swap respectively.
