What happens when you try to install from the media directly? I understand you used a boot.iso and then, after the installation started, you inserted the CD, DVD. I'm just wondering if this is issue only occurs when you use them (boot.iso and media) separetly.
Something really mysterious happened. Even if I am still able to reproduce issue, I would vote to close this report with NOTABUG resolution.
I have two sets of files / discs, sets are exactly same, they are different copies of same iso images. Older I downloaded yesterday, newer are downloaded today. All files / discs are fine, md5sum is valid, media check passed. If I am using older discs, issue occurs. But if I am using at least one newer disc (doesn't matter if older boot.iso newer disc1 or newer boot.iso and older disc1) issues doesn't occur.
So, even if older files / discs are not corrupted, issue is related only to those copies (I can't believe, but I saw that) hence this doesn't seem to be a real bug.
