Quick DVD freezes
« on: August 13, 2007, 05:21:34 pm »
I downloaded and burned the 0704 quick install dvd. It formats the ext3 partition and the swap partition and then freezes after showing 2 lines of fstab-like output.  Any ideas?

I  get this same problem, after it formats it spits out a few fstab lines and hangs.  I can switch to other terminals but I don't see any scripts running, its just sitting there like whatever is supposed to happen next isn't getting kicked off.   I am going to download the DVD again and try again.

Nevermind, I'm not going to download it again.  My md5sum matches:  c219674756bcd5ec202a68712baac2de  LinuxMCE_0704_Quick_Install_DVD.iso

I had the same thing. It got through swap and gave me an I/O error.
I installed with the cd's OK it just took a looooooooong time.
I switched out my DVDrw and HD and the DVD 704 got passed that error. (was bored and curious why dvd didn't work)

Now it crashes at usplash:
no usable theme found for 1024x768
screen init failed
*the unmounts and exits install.
I saw another person ran into that also.
