Description Mark Kieling 2001-11-03 17:20:20 EST
Installation of Red Hat 7.2 fails sometimes with a panic installing the 
last few packages on the second CD. Other times the installation completes 
but the file system has too many errors to allow the machine to boot. 
Hardware is as follows: 

Dell PowerEdge 1300 450Mhz PIII 
256 Mb RAM 
9GB IBM SCSI harddisk 
Adaptec 78xx SCSI controller 
ATI Rage XL 8 Mb PCI video adapter 
Intel NIC card 

This system has been runing RH 6.2 for a couple of year with no serious 
trouble. I have tried installing 6.2 and upgrading to 7.2 as well as clean 
install of 7.2. Neither was successful. I did a low level format of the 
hard disk with the Adaptec SCSI utitlities

How Reproducible: 100%

I also have a 366 Celeron system with IDE harddisk that exhibts the same 
Comment 2 Mark Kieling 2001-11-04 02:04:09 EST
Further investigation shows that there is a CIOBUS parity error being generated 
as the partitions are being formatted.  Any suggestions on a workaround for 
installing 7.2?

Do you have any debug error messages that you can attach?  It's hard for me to
diagnose the problem with the information I currently have.  

Also, did you check the md5sums of the ISOs?
