Mmm... (thinking out loud) could it be that you have to add additional 
support for these devices to detect the CF adapter and thus the hard disk?

Trick: you can try to "fool" the installer by attaching a USB key to 
force the detection of additional modules.

You can also jump to a virtual debug console (Alt+F2) to gather more 
information about the error.
