Weird install issue with FreeBSD

By Dumphrey ·
I downloaded and burnt to cd the latest FreeBSD (7). After burning the cds, I put number one into the drive of my trusty test computer (850 p3, 512 ram, 20 Gb HD). It currently has PCBSD installed on it, using a disk downloaded on the same computer, and burnt to the same batch/type of cd using the same program (imageburn).
It boots into the BSD setup just fine, but errors out repetedly when trying to copy the base system to the drive (-1 byte of XXXXXXX copied).
The BSD cd works just fine to install to a VM on my laptop, so I am assuming its in either the HD or cdrom of the test computer.
Any suggestions? I am currently looking for another cdrom to try, and have dban running on the HD to "zero" it out...

Have you tested the Image on the disk to make sure it is ok?.

With some disks you have a little program that when you click on it, it checks the disk to make sure that it is correct.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

but as I posted,
"The BSD cd works just fine to install to a VM on my laptop, so I am assuming its in either the HD or cdrom of the test computer."
If the cd was faulty, it would not install to the VM.
