Comment 5 Olof Johansson 2008-01-13 12:30:48 EST
Same here, I've seen this on PPC (PA Semi Electra), w/ marvell sata.

The driver module is loaded, and the drives are found without problem (including
partition table).

The "Partitioning Type" installer screen contains two items in the list of
drives, both entries are just a nonprintable character.

This should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide.
Comment 7 Andrew Farris 2008-01-14 20:00:11 EST
boot.iso and stage2.img from 20080114 repo do fix the problem of no installable
media found.  It looks like rawhide might be installable again.

X still fails to startup for the installer, but text mode is working fine, on my
vmware fusion guest.

Shoot.. I spoke too soon.  Anaconda fails at rpm transaction, see bug# 428709
(for anyone who sees my prior comment)
Comment 9 Andrew Farris 2008-01-15 19:05:57 EST
Checked this with the 20080115 built images (assuming still anaconda and it finds the harddrives as well.  Going to close this one up.
