3. Language: US English.
4. Keyboard: US English.
5. Finding Storage Device..... (several minutes).
6. Warning: Error processing drive fd0. Maybe it needs to be re-initialized. YOU WILL LOOSE ALL DATA ON THIS DRIVE. Ignore Drive or Re-initialize Drive? Reinitialize chosen.

lshal output after booting from Live CD.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-05-15 08:25:46 EDT
This is fixed after the beta, which is really quite old at this point.  We've done a ton of partition-related fixes since then.
