RE: ISO Image Problem



I had the exact same problem, using two different CD burners on the same
machine.

Eventually, I tried just burning the ISO's on my older laptop, and they
worked just fine. Having
wasted so much time trying to get working CDs originally, I never
investigated the root cause of
them not being burned correctly on the first machine, so haven't got a
solution unfortunately.

Maybe just try burning from a different computer.

I've been through this five times now and on two of the tries, I've done
just that and had the install fail.  However, this last batch of ISOs
came
from a site reported in this list as being a reliable mirror, so I'm
going
to try skipping the mediacheck again and see what happens.  If that
fails,
I'll get Roxio out, turn on the write verification so I *KNOW* my CD is
properly burned.

If that fails, then I'll try using a different CDROM drive in my target
machine.  I seriously doubt that's the problem because I had Windows
2000
Enterprise Server on this box and had no problems with the drive at all.
But, one never knows, so I swap it out and see....

Try skipping mediacheck, just for grins and giggles.  There is a strong
possibility it will successfully complete the install anyway.

Tried that, no go.

Yes.  I'm booting from disk 1 and running "linux mediacheck" at the
boot: prompt. I've also tried starting the install process which takes
you
into the mediacheck anyway.
