Description of problem:
When installing on a Compaq Presario ML350 with SCSI HDDs and a single IDE
CDROM, the installer can't recognise the installation  CDROM in the ide CDROM
drive. Messages saying "unable to identify cdrom format" appear on one of the
virtual consoles. I have tried appending nousb, hda=ide-scsi, ide=nodma, and
even noprobe but all to no avail. Disabling USB in the BIOS also did not help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Disk 1
2. Power on
3. Choose language, keyboard & then installation media

This sounds like either a kernel or hardware issue.

May be related to bug 96942.
