Redhat 8 installation asking looking for scsi cdrom


I am trying to install Redhat 8. I do not have any scsi or raid controllers or devices. The PC boots ok and the linux installation starts. I get prompted with graphical vs text install followed by language and keybord. Next I select Local CDROM to install from. All is good until this point where the device type prompt has SCSI as the only option. I have an EIDE Teac CD-540E drive. Should I not be able to choose between SCSI and Other?

Hardware setup is:
2 80GB WD drives on PIDE (master and slave)
1 CDROM on SIDE (master)

Can anyone help?

you can solve the problem through different approaches,read the README file in the CDROM
First copy the CDROM as *iso* images in your windows partition(fat32),make a installation boot floppy and boot from the floppy.
I don't know but maybe if you change the CDROM from master ,maybe it will work.
Secondly,you can just give the boot message here.You can access the message by pressing ctrl+pgdn or ctrl+pgup while booting for installation (in which different hardwares are detected).
Lastly ,are you sure that you don't require a device driver?
