Error: Unable to boot /install/2.6/linux when starting Etch Install


Hi, I have a problem where that when I try to start the Etch net install, when at the 'boot:' prompt. That when I press [enter] or type linux26 [enter] I get the error: unable to boot /install/2.6/linux. I've tried to daily builds. Does anybody know whats up?

Any info would be great, Buck

Have you checked the md5sums of the image you burnt? Tried a different brand of media, or cdrom drive?

Why the double post?

I think I refrased this topic, because the other post didnt attract any attention. I havent tried any other media etc.... because the Sarge disks worked fine. MD5Sums matched, so I sent an email on the lists.debian.org, and found ti was actually a problem, becausr the disks are autobuilt, and they were in the process of fixing it. In the end I just dist-upgraded using the sarge disks

Cheers, Buck

I posted the very same problem a day ago, basically when you burn the image with nero, you must close the session. otherwise the boot process fails to see the 2.6 directory.

Let me know if this does the trick
