diskboot.img fails to get dhcp address on e1000/e1000e

Description of problem:
System fails to achieve dhcp address for network install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
When attempting install from usb key with file images/diskboot.img dd'd to it, the installer kernel starts and boots into anaconda just fine.
I select English/us keyboard, select http install, select dhcp for IPv4 only, deselect IPv6, hit next/ok button and the install will not proceed.
alt-f3 log shows dhcp failed with message:
dhcp: ioctl SIOCGIFFLAGS failed 19 No such device
nothing I do at this point will make the install continue, including trying a manual address.
network installs should work.
boot.iso also fails in the same way booted off a cd.
tried both e1000 and e1000e hardware
the system is an ICH10 based motherboard
Can you determine if the kernel module is even loaded? I would think if you have the option to pick that card, you'd have the module loaded. You may also get some useful kernel error messages on tty4 or tty5 that could help determine what's going on.
sorry I've been extremely busy, I hope to get to this this week.
i386/x86_64 worked fine when I just tried it, the e1000/e1000e drivers were loaded and I got a DHCP address, after booting from usb key.
this was on 82541PI PCI adapter using e1000 driver.
please close as unreproducable, sorry for the thrash.
Okay, thanks for retesting.
