Linux distros won't install
Have tried to install several distros-Suse10.1, Xandros4.0 & Mephis with no success on a upgrade PC
Each CD installation begins as it should-customary welcome screens, etc. & continues to chug along seemingly loading the necessary drivers, etc.
The installtion then stalls with the error message cannot copy or read CD image. The installtion is halted, etc.
I have tried using other CD/DVD players (old and newer versions) on the same PC only to get the same errors. This would seem to rule out a hardware problem.
I had no problems installing these same distos on other PC's using the same CD's.
I even tested installing windows 2000 and XP on this same PC with no errors like the Linux.
I have tried several different hard drives - IDE and Sata all with the same result. I have even cleared the CMOS on the motherboard.
