I've had a few customers ask me to install ArchLinux for them on their virtual servers. We use VirtIO and while the driver is loaded and i can manually partition the disk, the installer freaks out and cant find them when trying to install.

I found a patch on this bug tracking system however it appears irrelevant now as it did not fix anything.

Let me know? Ive 3 clients who are waiting for ArchLinux and I cant provide them with it until this is fixed.
