Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72667
Invalid compressed format (err=1)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:02 EDT
I have western digital 40MB 7200RPM HD. I have XP installed for first 10GB. I
made two other partition. On Unformatted FAT, another is totally FREE space in
the following order:
XP (10GB) | FAT (14GB) | unpartitioned(13GB)
However when I inserted the first disk and reboot for installationg (NULL) then
I got the following message:
invalid compressed format (err=1) or (err=2) not sure
I then repartitioned my hard drive using XP in following order:
XP (10GB) | unpartitioned (13BG) | FAT (14GB)
at this time it worked.
I also incountered the same problem when I had RedHat 7.3 installed and tried to
install NULL over it. THanks.
Which bootloader did you use?
This message occurs right after installer boots from CD (after hitting enter)
before even entering the installation. I just tried again, I had installed RH
7.3 (using grub boot loader) then tried to install RH NULL, same thing. Thanks
I do not know what this issue might be.
I am glad you found a workaround.
