Not sure what we can do about that... If the kernel should be

Hmmm. So /dev/hdg is the drive you want to install on? It seemed
like you wanted to install to hdh ?
You should be able to run 'cfdisk /dev/hdh' in the 2nd virtual
However, I need you to resend this report, this time filed as a bug.
The bug here is that hdg and hdh are not showing up as possible disks
for partitioning. Please make it priority "important".
