Installation Source scfreen

Description of problem:

When running the Boot ISO of the CentOS Stream 8 installer, no mirrors are offered to the user, who must somehow figure out that manually entering http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-stream/BaseOS/x86_64/os/ is one way to continue and successfully install the system

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

CentOS-Stream-8-x86_64-20210331-boot.iso
and
CentOS-Stream-8-x86_64-20210316-boot.iso


How reproducible:








Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the CentOS Stream 8 installer
2. Set up networking
3. Go to the Installation Source spoke of Anaconda, where no mirrors are offered

Actual results:

Installation cannot proceed until the user finds the URL to a working mirror from a search on another device.

Expected results:

Anaconda offers a number of mirrors that the user can select to complete the installation.

Just for verification, could you please try to run the installation with `ip=dhcp` kernel boot parameter? If I'm correct than you should be able to start the installation as expected.

Comment 6 Steven Rosenberg 2021-04-19 17:28:16 UTC
I ran with ip=dhcp as a kernel boot parameter, and there was no change. Still no mirrors offered.
