cannot install rhel5.8 snapshot3 build
There is not enough information in this bug report to determine what the problem is. When you skip the installation number entry, can you switch to tty2 and grab /tmp/syslog and /tmp/anaconda.log and attach them to this bug report?

Select 'Skip entering Installation Number' and click OK, switch to tty2(if click 'Skip' button in the 'Skip' dialog, it's halted and cannot switch to tty2 in virtural machine.), please refer to the attached log files.

while i386 arch installed properly, I am getting problem with x86_64 only with:
not only network, I can reproduce it with cdrom, so remove network install from summary.
Was able to reproduce the problem using the latest 5.8 Server nightly on download.devel.redhat.com. It's a kernel panic. Attaching a PNG which captures what I can from the virt-manager window.
After you click Skip on the dialog box, anaconda moves on to storage device detection, if that helps at all.

There are no details to this bug!
Even its not mentioned the kvm is used (I detected it from the logs).
What is the host its running on? rhel5 or rhel6?
What's the guest xml or qemu command line? I see some scsi issues and we do not support scsi (not sure the issues are related).
KVM barely changed in 5.8 so I doubt its a virt issue.
Is this a regression (yes..)? and if it is, what's the last known version it worked?
Yes, definitely a dup. Leaving open as TestOnly just to be sure.
Verified that the bug has been fixed now on x86_64 Client. Steps can be seen at comment 0.
Move to verified.
