Looks like the IDE harddrive on /dev/hda is giving DMA related errors. You may
have luck if you try 'ide=nodma' on the boot command line for the installer.
Closing due to inactivty, please reopen if you have additional information to add.
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
