This happens, because the installer tries to mount the medium again. It tries to mount /dev/sr0. But there is no /dev/srv0 because the medium is available as mounted nfs.

i had similar problem because i had two netinst(RC2)
images on two USB sticks (didn't wipe 2nd stick so
when it checked media again it switched to the 2nd
one instead of staying with the first one). as the
2nd stick had already overwritten much of the image you
can say it didn't get much further.
i added info to bug #855075
didn't escalate or make a new report because it seemed
like such an arcane thing to do.
