The dump file it dumped when I tried to install.
Did you run media check on your installation media? The following messages
indicate errors reading from your optical drive and are either due to a bad
download, a bad burn, or driver issues:
<6>sr 4:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE,SUGGEST_OK
<6>sr 4:0:0:0: [sr0] Sense Key : Medium Error [current]
<6>sr 4:0:0:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: No seek complete
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 6521320
<3>Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 1630330
<3>SQUASHFS error: sb_bread failed reading block 0xdd57
<3>SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 3753555, size 29f6
Likely my drive or a bad download. I burned it twice on 2 different drives.
The drive I'm using to read with makes weird cranking noises when it gets to
that stage. Probably not a bad download because I tested using the .iso in a
Virtual Machine and it worked fine. No, I didn't run a media check.
I'm going to try booting from the drive I burned with.
Install worked from there, but I had to boot from the Install DVD, select rescue
system, and run "startx" after mounting my system as root to boot it. I'm in the
installation now, and I need a way to set it up using EasyBCD. Something crashes
when I load it the Install DVD way.
