[ovirt-users] Server 2012 R2 no drive found

Hi guys,

Is anyone able to assist here? I still can't install 2012 R2, whether
I use IDE, virtio, or virtio-scsi, I don't see a drive during the
first install.

I've tried the "virtio-win-1.6.8/vioserial/2k12R2/amd64" as a test and
this also doesn't work, so it doesn't seem like a driver issue, more
of a cluster issue.

I've also tried changing my Datacenter compatibility and Cluster to
3.4, but this seemed to make no difference. Both my hosts are upgraded
to Centos 6.5 all updates, as well as my ovirt and VDSM is updated to
the latest stable 3.4 packages.

I'm at a loss here, but desperately need to get this R2 installed.

Further to what Paul mentioned below, this was upgraded from 3.1 so it
doesn't just appear to happen to new 3.4 installs.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
