Have you tested your installation media?

Comment 3 corbin bennett 2003-05-01 16:56:35 UTC
First, I hope I am using this form correctly...I've never used Bugzilla before.
Next, in answer to the previous post, I have used this same installation media 
to successfully install Redhat on about half a dozen machines.  I will attempt 
to install Redhat 7.3 from this same media on another machine this morning 
(5/1/03) and report the results here.
I will say that the machine from which the error was generated has had a 
recent crash from which I was not able to recover and that is why I was re-
installing Redhat 7.3 from cd.  That crash makes me wonder if the HardDisk may 
be bad.  
At any rate, the anaconda dump file was generated so I went ahead and 
committed it here.

OK, now I've changed the hard drive and I'm using a different RedHat 7.3 cd.
Same result.
More explanation about the failure...
The installation seems to go fine.  I select all my options and take the 
default disk formatting.
Packages are loading, loading, loading, then about the time I would expect the 
first disk to be done...that's when the previously described failure occurs.
The window comes up with text that asks that I submit the 'bug' here.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-13 18:56:59 UTC
This error normally occurs when there is an error reading from the CD drive. My
experience with this problem is that some CD media/CD drive combinations don't
always work.

You could try swapping the CD drive out in the machines which do not work.
