Hello everyone,

I recently install 3.2.1 on CentOS 5.2 to test out the new Windows drivers but when the installer reboots it can't find the CD-ROM anymore and can not complete the installation.

I ran into the exact same problem with 3.0.3 and found the solution was to put hdc in the config file manually and setup was able to complete the install and everything was fine.

With 3.2.1 I found the config.sxp file under /usr/lib/var/xend/domains/ and the config file has the CD-ROM defined:

            (uuid 5261a9fd-0c69-6d95-48d8-a9778791d1a5)
            (mode r)
            (dev hdc:cdrom)
            (backend 0)
            (bootable 0)
            (VDI )

I did some searching around but wasn't able to find anything that addressed this issue, anyone have any ideas?
