Description Christopher B. Lirakis 2002-08-03 13:34:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
I have tried both  the GUI and text version of the anaconda installer. Both crash at the same point with the same results. The installer does quite a bit. When it gets to 
near 99% done with the package install, it fails with and unhandled exception. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot system from 7.3 CD
2.Choose system, pretty much any configuration. 
3.Allow the installer to operate. 

Actual Results:  After the installer gets to 99% of the packages transfered  from the CD to the HD, it crashes. The dump is attached below. I did do 
a media check on the cd's they were ok. 

Expected Results:  I am assuming the installation  should have proceeded. 

Additional info:

Looks like your drive may be failing:

<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 03:00 (hda), sector 5927062
<4>hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
<4>hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=5927064, sector=5927064

These are from the error log.
