From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Before starting Anaconda succesfully, it reports "exec: input/output error" and exits abnormaly.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert Fisher cd and start 'eli' from efi prompt
2.eject CD before it enters install script (blue screen).
3.Select NFS install, and point installer to previously setup install share. (see readme.txt on Fisher cdrom on how to set this up).
4.System will attempt to start Anaconda, the graphical installer

Actual Results:  At this point, "exec: input/output error" is displayed, and the installer exits abnormally

Expected Results:  Install should continue without errors.

Apologies if this should be a Normal instead of a High -- Assigned as High because this prevents one of  the supported installs from 

This was found on a W460GXBS2 workstation system, configured with:

We need to try and reproduce this inhouse with a current tree.
