sysinst assumes the first cd/dvd drive is the one you booted the
install cd from.
Hence it offers the first cd/dvd drive, mount fails with
'medium not present' and sysinst let the user start the whole
install setup from the beginning.

Before sysinst offers cd device selection it should
a) probe for available cd/dvd drives
b) probe available cd/dvd drives if media is present.

Allow the user to select a cd/dvd drive with a media being present.
