Description of problem:
During the install of Fedora 7 I receive and exception error and the install aborts just after formatting the single hard drive in my system. I downloaded the DVD ISO from one of the Fedora listed sites and burned it to a DVD. 

I Inserted the DVD into a system that was currently running a Fedora 6. The install was started using the GUI interface and all defaults were selected.  I selected to overwrite the current file system and selected the default productivity package. Anaconda then started and showed the Format / File system progress bar. This is a 250 Gig drive so it took about 15 minutes to complete. After the progress bar was finished I received a dialog box that stated an exception had occurred and was given the option to save to a floppy, debug, OK. Selecting OK caused to installation to abort, and a line of text indicating that it was ok to restart the system.

When I rebooted I noticed that the old version of GRUB was still on the hard drive. I preformed a wipe disk, but this gave the same results when I attempted to restart the install.

Likewise, running the install in the text mode gave the same results.

Attached is the text dump of the exception. I will attempt to perform an install from the rescue disk, using a USB drive with the ISO.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert DVD
2. Start install
3. Select overwrite current File System
4. Wait for format to compleat
5. Note the error
6. select OK
7. Install Aborts

Actual Results:
Fedora 7 did not Install

Expected Results:
The Fedora 7  package should install

Did you use media check to check your DVD?  You have lots of errors like the
following in your exception dump.

<6>sr 2:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x08000002
<6>sr0: Current: sense key: Medium Error
<6>    Additional sense: Unrecovered read error
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 5518968
<3>Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 1379742

Yes, I did the media check and it passed.

I was able to download the Fedora 7 Live (Gnome) CD, run it and selected save 
to hard disk. The install then formatted the hard drive, and installed fedora 
7 without any errors. So this seems to be a problem with the copy of the DVD 
install I got.

I downloaded a new copy of the DVD from a completely different site, and 
burned it with a different DVD drive, on a different brand of DVD blank. And I 
still got the same error when I used this new DVD
