Basically this means that the kernel, or at least the cpqarray driver, does
not correctly support your controller. There is nothing really we can do
about that in the installer.
I'm reassigning your report to the kernel team, but if you do not get a
response from them an alternative way to get help for this may be to
contact the linux-scsi kernel mailing list directly (at linux-scsi @
Please make sure that you include the output of the commands 'lspci -nn'
and 'dmesg' in your message. You can get those by switching to the debug
shell on VT2 in the installer.
If anythings comes out of that, please let us know the result.

In that case the wrong driver was "claiming" support for the controller.
Your issue could be similar, but could also be completely different.
P.S. Feel free to ignore the reply from Geert Stappers. His reply was
assuming that your error occurred when rebooting into the installed system,
while I understand from your report that the failure is during hardware
detection in the installer itself.
