Anaconda crashes when trying to install the Mesa-devel-3.3-5.i386.rpm.

Details follow:
Installing Red Hat Linux 7 using 2 CDs burned with the images available on 
RedHat's FTP site.
I choose partitionless installation, Workstation configuration installing 
the default packages. 
I give the suggested disk space to Red Hat (around 1080 Mb for data, and 
32 for swap if I recall correctly).
Start installation, choosing English, Standard Keyboard, Spanish Layout, 2-
button mouse emulation 3-b, ATI Rage M 8Mb, and all the other default 
In the middle of the installation, when anaconda tries to install the 
named Mesa component the computer hangs, it seems it cannot find the file. 
I have checked and the named file is on the CD.

This is the Anaconda Dump:
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", 
line 20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1543, in 
    self.instCallback, p)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1298, in 
    self.rpmFD = os.open(fn, os.O_RDONLY)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or 
directory: '/mnt/source/RedHat/RPMS/Mesa-devel-3.3-5.i386.rpm'

Local variables in innermost frame:
fn: /mnt/source/RedHat/RPMS/Mesa-devel-3.3-5.i386.rpm
total: 0

h: <header object at 88f6a48>
amount: 0
intf: <progress_gui.InstallProgressWindow instance at 8462cd8>
what: 2

ToDo object:


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Linux Red Hat 7 Public version, partitionless in a FAT32 
2. Select Workstation configuration and all the default options.
3. Wait until anaconda reaches the Mesa-devel package, it crashes at that 

Actual Results:  Anaconda gives an error message and after pressing OK on 
the dialog box, the computer resets.

Expected Results:  Succesful installation.

Using a DELL Inspiron 3800 notebook.

I'm sorry, I was searching bugzilla for my bug before posting but I couldn't 
find anything. Today I was browsing redhat support when I saw a fix to 
something similar to my problem. It is fixed now.
