I did not see any option to get out of that infinite loop - get "no
driver", then "select driver", and repeat. Do have the "back" button,
but that goes back to the start. No way to get out of it for the
And not even clear what driver it is complaining about - says
"installation media driver problem" - can't be network (I'm not
installing from network), can't be DVD (I'm installing from DVD, and
it booted from DVD, and started the install process), maybe it is the
on-board SATA driver for the hard-drive? The x86_64 install also used
a text-based menu
Then I tried the i386 version and that goes through the full install
process just fine, and uses graphical menu.
