Running openqa on a rocky 9.1 server using a fedora 38 vm but have hit a dead stop, Every run hangs at the dracut-pre-udev stage with anaconda-modprobe: Module cramfs & floppy not found. This looks very like rocky Issue 0000991 but here it hangs rather than continue the boot. Got it working later with host-passthrough for the hw virtualisation so now working on openqa. The above issue is still valid.

As this was reported during an old version of Rocky Linux 9 and was not reported during 9.2 test cycles, this report will be closed.

If this is affecting the installer from running, please open a new bug report and if possible, provide screenshots and anaconda logs so that we can investigate.
