Debian install CDROM problems


Hi,

I'm installing "Vanilla" Debian from CDRs running on a Mitsumi 4x ATAPI FX400 drive. I can boot from the Vanilla CD to install but when I get to "install kernel and drivers" I get the message "CD-ROM was not mounted successfully."

Switching to the shell, I can mount CDs 2 and 3 and view their contents, but when trying to mount CD 1 I get the error "No medium found." I also cannot boot from CD1.

With a windows machine I can view CDs 2 and 3 with a DVD drive, but not CD 1.

All images were built using jigdo. I tried downloading/burning the first image directly and had the same problems.

Sounds like a CDR reading/format error, but if so why can CDs 2 and 3 be read but not 1 ?

Thanks,
Gilman Gunn

It could be that your cd1 had a slight error on the download. Did you check the md5sums?

1700+ md5 errors on the disk 1 iso using md5summer for windows. Tried downloading from 2 different mirrors, both had exact number and type md5 errors.

Am not sure what to do at this point as it seems the ISOs themselves are bunk

Where did the isos come from? I normally get mine from Linuxiso. If you have a slow link, I'd suggest tracking down cheap Linux disks from the web. There are many places that do them for a handful of local currency.
