Question debootstrap failure installing under VMware

I am trying to install Debian 9 (netinstall 9.2.1 amd64, ISO verified against MD5 hash) under VMware Player.
I have 2 hardware machines, both running win7, both running same version of VMware Player (6.0)

Machine 1: HP z220 with i7 3770 @3.8GHz
Machine 2: Lenovo V510 laptop with i7 7500U @2.7GHz

On machine 1: installation works without problems.
On machine 2: during "installing base system", after partitioning, before asking for mirrors, it stops with:
debootstrap failure
Console 4 shows a process exiting with error stating corrupt archive while decompressing libc6.
It happens always at the same package, unless I change CPU settings.

If I disable various CPU acceleration features in VMware player, I get the same error, just at another package (varies).

- Debian 8 netinstall ISO works without problems.

- At this time I am restricted (not by my choice) to these 2 hardware machines and the base software and versions existing on them.
The laptop was supposed to be used during some presentations and teachings, which include the installation phase.


debian 9, debootstrap, netinstall
