That's a known kernel issue: the SATA driver blocks the access to the 
CD-ROM.

See for example bug #303135.

You can work around it by starting the installation in expert mode and 
only loading the drivers needed for CD-ROM support (IIRC ide-generic and 
ide-cdrom) during the first stage of hardware detection.
