               I tried both way of istallation. I will brief you below what I experienced when I tried installation in text mode:
       

boot:linux text              ->  is typed
                      OK  SKIP
SKIP
now the message is :
----------
  No hard drives have been found
and you probably needs to manually choose
device drivers for the installation to
succeed.would you like to select drivers now
***                 YES  NO
if YES the message is
--------------

on which to create new file systems. please check your
hardware for the cause of the problem.

**    IF ADD DEVICE IS  PRESSED THE MESSAGE IS THEN
---------------------------------------------------------
