Have you tested the media you are installing from?
I did an md5sum of the CD's and they are correct.
There are instructions at:
for testing the installation media. I would recommend testing with this method
I did a linux mediacheck on disk 1 and it passed.
note: I did not check the other disks because the failure always happens before
This issue occurs when a read error on CD #1 causes the device to stay busy and
unable to remount. The mediacheck procedure will not always identify CDs which
will not work with the installer unfortunately if the CD is not obviously defective.
I would recommend trying a different CD #1, perhaps on a different brand of media.
Michael was correct all along the problem was with the media even though it was
not obvious to me.
Thanks for your help
