Yes, that's the problem. grub2 core.img with btrfs support exceeds 63
(actually 62) sectors and cannot be embedded in post-MBR - not enough
space. Installation in extended partition is not possible because
btrfs does not support blocklists (too advanced for it ...)

There is patch submitted to Factory that will install core.img in
space reserved for bootloader on btrfs partition in this case while
having master boot code in MBR. You can grab packages here

Aha! Thanks, Andrei. Perhaps the 13.2 install program should check on
this factor before it attempts the full install...


Too late. Assuming newer version will be released as update, future
installations will work as long as update repository will be available
during install.

I may just try a new install on a different drive with 2048 (2047?)
sectors up front

Yes, that should work just fine. Or having btrfs partition as primary
(so you can install bootloader there and mark it as active). Or having
separate /boot with ext2 on primary partition.

Did this also cause the xfs problem or is that problem a totally
different issue?


There is no problem with xfs. You need newer kernel than one from 13.1,
that's all. Nobody ever promised downward compatibility.
