Sounds like your download was corrupted, or else your media is bad. Please
run the mediacheck feature of the installer any time you have installation
problems/errors to ensure that your media is not at fault.
At the boot prompt of the installer type: linux mediacheck
Does the mediacheck succeed or fail?
The mediacheck fail :-(
How can it be?
If mediacheck fails, then there are various possible reasons:
1) ISO image was corrupted during download
2) Your media is bad, or your media and your burner don't like each other
3) Some other reason for bad interaction between burner and media
Try using some other brand of media, or burning the disks at a lower speed.
You might also want to try cdrecord instead of cdrdao.
Closing as NOTABUG.
