I gave up for now on PC #3, and tried the same DVD-RW in PC #2.
It did hit a choice of upgrading, which I took -- whereupon it hung. I
let it go a long long time, thinking it might yet manage, then finally
hit Ctrl-Alt-Bs. There were two messages there saying that 30-second
timeouts had been exceeded, and one admitting failure.
I hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete, and it restarted Anaconda -- but went yet
again only to the screen without the upgrade option. <sigh>
