Looks like you mean:
I think I have the same issue. I want to boot in the rescue mode on a Dell
R200. The DVD drive is connected via SATA. It boots fine, but then when I
tell it about the local CDROM installation it prompts me with "unable to
find any devices of the type needed for this installation type" and asks
to select a driver. I tried all sata_ drivers from the list, but none
seems to work.
I'm now going to give it a network path, but, nevertheless, shouldn't the
DVD boot to rescue work just fine? It can boot from the DVD, but then
cannot access the OS data? Weird.
