Description giulioo 2000-08-01 20:28:02 UTC
I performed 2 "boot: text expert" installs on this machines. They 
completed ok. They were intermixed with the GUI install tries.

I tried 7 times the GUI install:

1st time: GUI came up, language, kb, ...., confirm workstation install, 
unusual delay, spontaneous reboot.

Other times: neve got to the GUI screen anymore. Sometime the install just 
hangs, sometime it switch to text mode and then cannot detect the cdrom. 
The reason is always the same, CD errors:

cdrom_decode_status: status=0x51 {DriveReady SeekComplete Error}
cdrom_decode_status: error=0x30
Error, unit attention.... {Sense key=0x06}
Power on, reset or hardware reset occurred.

The cdrom is an ide cdrw. It worked with beta3 (the only GUI install I 
could do). And it works with text beta5 installs.

Olidata (www.olidata.it) is the biggest Italian "system integrator" or
whatever you call who buys parts in Asia and sells pc's.
Don't know the original maker of the monitor, Olidata re-brands them.
It's made in china...

This is most certainly a bad CD media.  Please try with another disc.
