Summary0017940: Problems installing VirtualBox VM from CentOS 8.3.2011 boot iso
DescriptionOn an up to date CentOS 7.9 PC I tried installing CentOS 8.3 on a VirtualBox 6.1.16 VM from the CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-boot.iso image file. After boot, as with previous versions, the network interface is disabled, so the Installation Source is not set. When I enable the network interface Anaconda makes another attempt at setting the default installation source, but fails again. If I then choose "Installation Source" to set it by hand, the "Closest mirror" option is not available.
Steps To ReproduceOn a PC running CentOS 7.9:
Run dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/rpm/el/virtualbox.repo
Run dnf install VirtualBox-6.1
Download the CentOS-8.3.2011-x86_64-boot.iso image file from the CentOS web site
Create a new virtual machine: I used 4 GB RAM, 64 GB HD, 2 processors. Insert the iso image in the virtual CD-ROM drive.
Boot the machine
On the main Anaconda screen choose Network and enable the network interface
Notice how the Install media module fails to initialize install media
Additional InformationIt is possible to carry on the installation by inserting a repository URL by hand. I'm not sure what is the correct one to use. If I enter

http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=8&arch=x86_64&repo=BaseOS&infra=$infra

The installation proceeds but I'd get only a subset of the installation options I get when installing with the 8.2 boot iso image.
