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

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.

Comment 5 acfrazier 2007-11-24 01:35:30 UTC
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.
