Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 586996
The downloaded ISO is damaged
Last modified: 2010-05-19 08:22:28 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting installation the DVD media check always fails.

Steps to Reproduce:
Downloaded RHEL 6 Beta x86_64 DVD ISO is not working. First, media test is generating error even though the media is ok - free of damages/scratches, done on tested DVD burner, repeated three times with the new ISO download. Same result.
Media check tries, but it doesn't always work. Before we even have a hope of debugging this, though, we need the contents of /tmp/syslog attached to this bug report.

If anaconda offers to proceed in spite of failed check, and doesn't crash by the time stage 2 is loaded, you can then go to virtual terminal 2 (ctrl+alt+f2), and use scp to copy the file, or copy it to local removable storage.
If you can't go past the failing media check, snapshot of virtual terminal 4 (ctrl+alt+f4) can be useful.
