fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again.
Press the OK button to re-boot your system." WOW just like the MAC in 1984 "System error ! OK"
Expected Results: the product should have cpompleted the install without error
The machine is a Dell P 60 with 5 gig drive 128 Meg RAM, ATI Xpert 98 Video card. I had Linux 6.1 on it before, upgraded it to 7.3, that worked ok.
Later I had to wipe the machine for a diff project, now I am trying to install 7.3 from scratch. Full disk wipe, re-partition, re-format, grub boot loader.
First tried server install then tried gnome workstation install, same result.
Have you tested your CDs?
