It looks like you're trying to install a paravirt guest from an iso 
image. Unfortunately this won't work -- for paravirt guests, you need to 
point the installer to a yum repository that has the paravirt kernel and 
initrd in the place the installer expects.

If you're trying to install a fully virt guest, you need to either use 
the CD, or select the ISO from a readable filesystem.

If you can provide more details, we may be able to help more...
