I have been following this issue and glad you got this resolved. As you said, the partitionfile is what fixed it and now you are using it correctly.
Not sure what was your issue, do not be confused by messages “Found /dev/sdk, generating partition file”, these messages do not mean that the drives will actually be used.

hmm not much interest in this thread, but for completion and anyone that prefers to go the OpenHPC / xCat stateful route, I will show what happened with this finally.
I saved this to /install/custom/my-partitions and attached it to the install image with:
Then regenerate the xcat file for the node(s):
This regenerates the files inside /install/autoinst . You can empty this folder before issuing nodeset to make sure they are regenerated.
If you do tail on the xcat log (or ssh to the node being installed), just ignore the Found /dev/sdx , it should use the drive you specified in the partitionfile for your osimage regardless:
