I'd say start at application level first. File against one application and 
mention in your BZ that the problem is not app. specific. Let the developer make 
the call to escalate to the kernel. The kernel guys hate it when people just 
assume it is the kernel's fault without solid proof. By pointing out that is 
works on windows will make them even more angry :). In your case it looks like a 
kernel fault, but in many cases, it just happens that all userspace application 
eventually go through some userspace library which is at fault rather than the 
kernel. (For example bluetooth, usb devices which go through libusb etc)

Well, not necessarily. You do know that you can do installs from media on HDD 
too right ?[1]

Just copy the iso's to your windows partition (assuming it is FAT /not/ ntfs -- 
dunno the current status, but last i checked install from HDD supported only 
ext[23] and fat)
