Mandriva Install Fails, whats going on, Help?

By Slayer_ ·
It just pops this error message and then fades to black. Whats going on? Is it fixable?

http://www.trevorsarchives.selfip.net/temp/MandrivaFailing.JPG


I have the VM set to a 60gb HDD and 1gb of RAM.
The install is running from the DVD ISO file, not burned to disc.


Not going to work or am I missing something?

Did you verify the image?

You can have the image checked on many distros. One of the boot options should be to verify the disk(s). I had similar issues with SUSE 11 and found the burn was bad.

The install doesn't seem to give many options


Boot for HDD

Hmmm -- updated

by w2ktechman In reply to How do I check it?

the SUSE disk had it as a boot option. Here is the first site I found for checking Mandriva disk

http://home.mindspring.com/~rolfpedersen/Mandriva%20Hard%20Disk%20Install.html

And apparently this is the first place to check. In this forum it mentions this error

http://forum.mandriva.com/viewtopic.php?p=393375

and says the same thing. Likely it is a bad disk image/burn.

Have you run md5sum on the image. If it has errors you may have to re-download the ISO.
