Why should someone have to re-implement what we used to be able to do on
Fedora, years ago?
Way back when I had to use slow CD-ROMs to install, or not-as-slow DVDs,
I found it quicker to copy installation info (ISO or expanded tree) to a
partition on a drive, boot the simpler network install disc (probably
could have avoided that, but was convenient enough for me), but run the
rest of the install from the hard drive. I just kept one partition
spare, and didn't include it as part of the install.
The installer never used to block use of an entire drive, or any drive,
for that matter.
You still can do that as long as you extract the ISO file. It's just if
you try to directly use an ISO file that the hard drive is removed from
the list. Feel free to file a bug on anaconda if that's a problem for you.
