invalid image or kernal installing Poseidon 4
I've tried installing Poseidon 4 on my lenovo laptop. The other OS is Win7.
I burned the .iso to a dvd, and upon rebooting to install I get the following message:
"bad image or kernal"
Then I get shunted back to the splash page with 4 or 5 other methods for install (text only, etc), but each method gets the same error message.
Other tech notes: I partitioned ~30gigs of space on my hdd, but left it unformatted. I burned the .iso with some version of Nero, and I downloaded the .iso from http://poseidon.linuxfreedom.com/download.html.
To install, I just put the dvd in the drive and restarted the machine.
Thank you in advance for your time and attention.
If you got that far at least you burnt it correctly (as an image).
Check the md5 on that download page. If that matches, try burning at a lower speed.
I did do the md5 check and it came out OK, though the file name in the md5 file was not what I downloaded. Once I changed the file to the correct filename it checked out.
I also tried burning at lower speeds and there was a write error both times.
I've also been downloading another copy (all day!) to see if that .iso is any better.
Personally I don't think I'd bother (potentially) wasting the time and bandwidth. If the md5 matches, I reckon that indicates they may have a bad image.
If they have a support forum, I'd raise a query there.
My solution was to switch to Mint 12.
The installation was flawless except that Mint doesn't recognize my docking port.
