Yep, that is correct. The guided partitioning option using the full disk 
will delete all contents of the disk. And if you use the hd-media method, 
the installer needs to be able to access the CD image on that same disk.

The only guided partitioning method you can use, is the "use available 
free space" one, which means that you will first have to free up space by 
deleting or resizing partitions.

There is no real solution to this dilemma, other than booting the 
installer off some other medium.
