I think that as soon as anaconda problem is solved, DVD should be
re-issued. I am waiting that before wiping out one of my server, for a
clean install
Luckily I had other computer upgraded by switching from F7 to
development repos and finally to F8. I am following same procedure for
F9, development repos is already enabled on one of my computer
