When launching installer of RH7.1 from bootable CD, it always finish on
dialogue about type of installation (from CD or HDD). When I select CD I
always get message like "Unable to find CD-ROM with installation", but it
is already in maschine (it was booted up from it...).
I found a problem like this on Listserver, but the solution there
(disconnect CDRW drive and use only CDROM) did not work for me.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert bootable install CD
2. start installation, pressing ENTER in installeation type
3. choosing language and keyboard layout
4. choosing installation type - from CD or HDD
Actual Results: Installer is always unable to find CDROM drive with RH7.1
Expected Results: Start to install - ask about components etc.
I have an QDI mainboard with Celeron 500, 768 RAM, 1x20 GB Maxtor PLUS
(IDE), 1x15GB IBM (ide), 1xTEAC CDRW (ide) and 1xTOSHIBA CDROM (ide).
Try making a boot floppy from the boot.img in the /images directory on the cd.
Boot from that floppy and select CDROM as the installation media. Does this fix
