Angry Problem as soon as it starts:"Isolinux: Disk error 01, 421A,9f"


Hi all!

Im a real nubb on Linux, so this may be a dumb question:

I loaded Gentoo Linux, and burnd 2 CDs from the ISOs, next I tried to start Installing, but when I try to boot from the Disk I always get that error: "Isolinux: Disk error 01, 421A,9f".

I searced Google and Posted at many forums but there was noone who was able to help me. I hope somone could tell me hwo to get rid of that error. Thx

If the md5sum checked out, it sounds as if you didn't burn the iso files as CD images (that is what they are). Don't extract and burn, but burn as an image or order some pre-burnt CDs.

Set your bios to boot from the CD before the hard drive then.

I have had some flaky CDROM drives that wouldn't read some CD-Rs and it wouldn' read any CD-RWs.

Can you swap it out and see if it's a bad drive?
