Is this during the first hardware detection phase, when the installer is
running from a minimal initrd that does not contain drivers for
or after the second phase, when the installer has loaded all available
components (including scsi-exta-modules, which contains the 3w-xxxx
module) from CD?

I suspect the former, which makes this a red herring. It's just as
likely that the 3w-xxxx module is not the right one for your hardware,
or fails to detect your disks, or that there is some other problem.

Send us a full set of logs, please. Preferably in a proper and complete
installation report filed in the bug tracking system.
