Subject: Installation step failed: Detect and mount CD-ROM

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package: devuan-installer
Version: devuan_ascii_2.0.0-beta_amd64_NETINST.iso

Installation step failed: Detect and mount CD-ROM
My system is a Lenovo T420, where I have switched the original CD/DVD-drive with an DiskDrive-cabinet. In the new cabinet I have an SSD that works as expected when mounted and tested in Devuan Jessie before.

So, I don't not have a CD/DVD-drive installed to my T420.

Starting an install with iso as Version from a USB-stick. Unetbootin is the application I used to make the USB.
Gets through the first steps of choosing Language, Locale and keymap. Does not seem to make diffrence to problem if other Language choosed.
Next step is: Detect and mount CD-ROM
Installer tries to find my CD-ROM and asks for drivers on removable media. Since not detected, it asks if I want to manually load drivers.
When I go forward from here, installer raises Installation Step failed.
