Fedora 8 x86_64: "You have specified an install method which isn't supported by anaconda"

I'm trying to upgrade my 64 bit F7 install on a Core 2 Duo notebook.
>From power-up I put the F8 x86_64 DVD in the drive, the bootloader appears
and I select "Install or upgrade an existing system". The kernel boots,
asks me if I want to verify the installation media. After that, X starts
up and I immediately get a box pop up which says "You have specified an
install method which isn't supported by anaconda".
Pressing the Ok button just results in the system shutting down.
I am now upgrading from text mode, which seems to be working. A quick
scan of the mailing list seems to suggest no one else has seen this
problem, but I can't think why it would just affect me since the error
message appears as soon as anaconda starts, before it asks for the user
to make any choices.
