<4>hdc: media error (bad sector): status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hdc: media error (bad sector): error=0x30 { LastFailedSense=0x03 }

Your media appears to be bad.  You should verify your media according to the
instructions at http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html?
Comment 5 Stuart MacDonald 2005-06-23 12:03:44 EDT
Please actually read my bug report. DVD passed media check.

Having said that, I suspect that the IDE controller is bad. I hadn't spotted
those errors in the copious traceback output yesterday. I'll check out that

Having said that, this *is* *a* *bug*. The installer SHOULD NOT CRASH even if
the media is bad.
