Downloaded the Fedora Core 7 i386 DVD version.
Wrote it to DVD and succesfully installed it onto a desktop machine.
Yet, trying to install to a Fujitsu Siemens V2010 notebook, states corrupted packages on installation.
One specific error is:-
"The file xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.6.3-2.fc7.i386.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file or perhaps a corrupt package. Please verify your mirror contains all required packages, and try using a different one.
If you reboot, your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require reinstallation."
Doing a media check of the DVD on the Fujitsu V2010 states "FAILED"
Doing a media check of the same DVD on the desktop machine states "SUCCESS
I flashed the Fujitsu V2010 with the latest BIOS I could obtain. No improvement...
Went One further and used Windows 2000 Server to create a RIS (Remote Installation Service) image of FC7. (The Media is obtained via FTP from the same RIS server)
Although both desktop and notebook does the PXEBoot perfectly, presenting the FC7 installation menus etc, BOTH machines "crash" with abovementioned error DURING file (media) installation.
Been battling more than a week with this and is desperately looking for any answers to get FC7 installed onto the Notebook...
Can anyone please assist?
